  • Should feel safe
  • Have the right to contact their parents or trusted adult if they feel unsafe, uncomfortable or distressed at any time during an activity, event, program or service
  • Should expect that the activities, events, programs or services that we provide are suitable for young people’s age and development, and are led by appropriately qualified staff
  • Will be provided with clear directions and given an opportunity to redirect behaviour in a positive manner if staff believe that program rules have been broken or the young person has misbehaved
  • Should NOT be subject to disciplinary action involving physical punishment, or any form of treatment that could reasonably be considered degrading, cruel, frightening or humiliating
