Commitment to Child Safety


EGHS Public Commitment to Child Safety

East Grampians Health Service (EGHS) is committed to the safety and well-being of children and young people and, as such, is committed to creating and maintaining a child safe organisation.

We will ensure that all children and young people who attend our services, programs and events feel safe, empowered to participate in their care and are heard if they raise concerns about their safety and well-being.

We have policies and systems in place to protect children and young people, and all allegations of abuse and safety concerns are treated seriously.

Our child safe environment values safety, diversity and inclusion for all children and young people.

In acknowledgment of their vulnerabilities, we particularly support participation and empowerment of those children and young people with a disability, who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and those who identify with the LGBTIQ+ community.
