TDG strictly follows Child Safe Standards
Since January 2017, all organisations and businesses in Victoria that provide services or facilities for children are required by law to implement Child Safe Standards.
While not everyone heeds the legislation, TDG is the exception. We all have a responsibility to keep children safe and TDG makes it a priority to strictly follow Child Safe Standards (or equivalent) not just in Victoria but nationally.
It includes recognising the overall protection and cultural safety of all children especially:
✔ Aboriginal children and young people
✔ Children and young people from culturally and or linguistically diverse backgrounds
✔ Children and young people with disabilities
Peace of mind for Schools & Parents
To ensure peace of mind among teachers, school administrators and parents, relevant risk assessments and compliance documents for all our suppliers including hotels/tour companies/coach and private transfer companies/activities have been prepared in this particular tour such as:
✔ Working with Children in Australia or Police checks for other countries for staff and volunteers
✔ Safeguarding Plan or child safe policy or countries equivalent
✔ First Aid Cover
✔ Does the organisation have a code of conduct for all adults and volunteers
✔ Does the company or organisation have a policy for use of photography and social media
✔ Civil and public liability insurance coverage
✔ Risk assessments and compliance documents pertaining to the business or organization
✔ Does the organisation have a process in place for reporting any safeguarding concerns/issues
We make the process as seamless as possible.
