Child Protection


It is the policy of Girl Guides South Australia to safeguard the welfare and safety of its members while participating in Guiding activities. Girl Guides South Australia takes all reasonable steps to ensure that, through relevant procedures and training, children, young people and adults taking part in Guiding activities do so in a safe and friendly environment.
Girl Guides South Australia is committed to creating child-safe environments that promote learning and enjoyment. The organisation strives to provide services and activities where children and young people:
  • feel safe and are protected from harm
  • have a say in planning activities and other decisions affecting them
  • are listened to
  • are respected
  • have their best interests considered and upheld
All Girl Guides South Australia Leaders complete a Child Safe training in relation to policies and procedures regarding the protection of children from abuse.
 
Girl Guides South Australia also requires all Adult Members who are interacting with Youth Members to have a current National Police Certificate.
