Child Safety

VAPS is committed to promoting and protecting the interests and safety of children.

We have zero tolerance for child abuse. VAPS will take action to manage and reduce the risk of child abuse. Everyone involved with VAPS (whether employed, volunteering, or observing) who is in contact with children is responsible for the care and protection of children and reporting information about child abuse. VAPS will consider and address child abuse situations and risks in an integrated and proactive fashion.

Below is a link to the VAPS Child Safety Policy and the VAPS Safeguarding Reporting Form. All members and associates of VAPS are expected to read, adhere to, and utilise the Child Safety Policy and Safeguarding Reporting Form where necessary.
