Our commitment to child safety

Keeping children and young people safe is a shared responsibility at Hawkesbury City Council. We actively promote a safeguarding culture and seek to create environments across our organisation where all children can feel welcomed, valued, and safe.

We value and support diversity and inclusion and recognise that children come from different backgrounds and have different needs. We believe that all children regardless of their age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious beliefs, ability, and family background have the right to be protected from harm and to be treated with dignity and respect.

We have zero tolerance of child abuse and are committed to actively contributing towards a child safe community where all children and young people are protected from harm.
