Child Safety Information
In line with Victorian Legislative requirements, the Hyde Street Youth Band has developed a range of Child Safety documents including a Policy Statement, Child Safety Code of Conduct and Incident Reporting form all of which are available on this web page.
The band has also implemented a training requirements for all committee and office bearers, Musical Directors and volunteers to ensure all are aware of how to ensure the safety of children and what they responsibilities are in the event they witness, suspect or have an incident reported to them.
The policies were prepared following a consultation process where members were invited to review draft documents which had been prepared in line with government guidelines.
It should also be noted that individuals involved with the band who are required by legislation to hold a Working with Children Check, provide copies of these checks and they are monitored to ensure they remain current. More information on the requirement to hold a Working with Children Check can be located at www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au
As well as the documents above, the Hyde Street Youth Band has also developed Human Resources and Recruitment Practices to ensure we remain a Child Safe Organisation. These can be viewed up on request to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
