Child safety statement of commitment

Stroke Foundation is committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of all children. We are an organisation that respects, supports and promotes children’s rights, with zero tolerance for child abuse or misconduct towards a child.

Stroke Foundation is committed to the principles of cultural safety and inclusion of children from diverse backgrounds. We acknowledge certain groups of children are especially vulnerable and take every measure possible to ensure these groups of children have access to support and are empowered to participate.

Stroke Foundation is creating a culture of inclusion and productivity that encourages children to have a voice and participate in decisions made about them. Stroke Foundation will ensure children are supported to speak up and that they understand they will be taken seriously.

Everyone at Stroke Foundation is responsible for helping to create a safe and supportive environment for children. We aim to create a culture of child safety that reduces opportunity for harm and provides our staff, volunteers and students with a clear process to follow when child safety concerns are raised.

Stroke Foundation’s commitment to child safety is implemented and monitored against the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.
