JCMA Child Safe Policies

JCMA aims to provide children and young people with a positive and enriching environment that promotes their safety and wellbeing. As part of this commitment, we have developed a Child Safety Code of Conduct for our organisation and have policies that guides our staff and volunteers on how to behave with children in our organisation. All of our staff and volunteers must agree to abide by our code of conduct which specifies the standards of conduct required when working with children.  See the  JCMA Statement of Commitment for Child Safety below.
