Child Safe

The City of Greater Dandenong is a Child Friendly City.  Children and young people are valued, respected and celebrated.  They are vital and active participants in Council.
We are committed to ensuring our organisation has a culture of child safety.  This includes promoting the cultural safety of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and other children and young people from a culturally and/or linguistically diverse background, as well as promoting the safety of children and young people with disabilities.
We endeavour to employ skilled people to work with children and young people, who are committed to upholding child safety. If you work with children or young people, or regularly come into contact with them, it is likely we will require you to hold a valid Working With Children Check.  We also carry out reference checks and police record checks to ensure we recruit the right people.
