Orygen is committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of all children. We play an important role in ensuring the health and wellbeing of children and do not tolerate child abuse. All allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously, reported and investigated. Orygen is committed to listening respectfully at all times to children and advocating for their right to feel and be safe, valued and protected.
All children and young people who are supported by Orygen have the right to feel and be safe. Orygen is committed to the principles of cultural safety and inclusion of children from diverse backgrounds and to the safety and inclusion of children with disability, and we recognise that these principles support the safety of all children.
Every person involved at Orygen has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role they play individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do. We aim to create a culture of child safety that reduces opportunity for harm and provides our staff with a clear process to follow when child safety concerns are raised.
Orygen delivers all care in accordance with the Victorian Mental Health Act (2014).
