Child Safety Statement of Commitment

Frankston City Council is committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of all children and to protecting them from child abuse. 

Council does not tolerate child abuse and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously, reported and investigated. 

Council will at all times listen to children respectfully and advocate for their right to feel safe, valued and protected. 

Council will work in partnership with local organisations and services to protect children in our community from child abuse regardless of their age, gender, race, ability or their family’s religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or social background. 

Council is committed to the ongoing training and education of Councillors, employees, contractors and volunteers on child safety.
