Our commitment to child safety
The Zone Fun Park is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children. Child
safety is an integral focus when implementing business strategies, as it is our aim to
ensure children are safe, happy and empowered within our park. Furthermore, we
provide children with the same support, encouragement and respect that are placed
on our staff and volunteers.
The Zone strives to create a safe environment, with zero tolerance for child abuse.
All allegations and safety concerns are treated seriously and consistently with our
robust policies and procedures. Particular attention is paid to the safety of Aboriginal
children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as
the safety of children with a disability.
Each person associated with The Zone has a responsibility to ensure child safety and
well being is at the forefront of all work procedures. It is important each person
understands his or her individual and collective role towards these commitments.
The Zone has specific policies, procedures and training in place that support our
leadership team, staff and volunteers to achieve these commitments.
If you believe a child is at immediate risk of abuse please call 000.
