East Gippsland Inc acknowledges the Traditional Custodians, the people of the Gunaikurnai, on whose land our programs operate. We pay respects to their history, culture and Elders both past, present and emerging.

CRASHENDO! East Gippsland is committed to the safety, wellbeing and empowerment of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making.

Our Statement of Commitment to Child safety applies to all who are in contact with children and young people in our programs and includes other children and young people, members of our committee, parents/carers, contractors and volunteers.

At CRASHENDO! East Gippsland we believe that every child is entitled to be safe and feel safe so they can develop their educational and social outcomes to their full potential. Our organisation’s values of high quality learning, connectivity & collaboration, engagement, inclusivity, resilience and personal growth are very important to us as they create the environment to grow socially and academically.

CRASHENDO! East Gippsland has zero tolerance for child abuse.
We are committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, children/families who identify with the LGBTQI+ community and to ensuring the safety of children with a disability.

Child Safety is Everyone’s Responsibility.

Every person involved in CRASHENDO! East Gippsland has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role they play individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.
