Rainbow Families is committed to ensuring that children are protected in any of the activities or events that come under the Rainbow Families banner, particularly in relation to volunteers and staff who are working with kids.
With this in mind, the committee has developed a Working With Children Check Policy which will be phased in by the end of October 2017.
The policy simply requires anyone who volunteers or works with Rainbow Families to have a valid Working With Children Check Number. These will be stored and verified by Rainbow Families.
Getting a Working With Children Check Number is quick and easy, and as a volunteer it is free. It is one small way the Rainbow Families committee can ensure the safety of the children in our community.
