All children and young people who engage with Whitelion Youth have a right to feel and to be safe, are valued, respected, and encouraged to participate. The safety and protection of children and young people will always be our first priority and we have zero-tolerance approach to child abuse and harm. All children and young people, regardless of their gender, race, religious beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation, or family or social background, have equal rights to protection from harm, risk of harm, abuse, and neglect.
Whitelion supports and respects all children, young people, staff, and volunteers. Whitelion is committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people, and those from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children and young people living with a disability. We recognise that some children and young people experience co-occurring forms of oppression through their experience and therefore, require additional supports.
