Commitment Statement: Pacific Assist regards all children of all nationalities, cultures, backgrounds and identity as great treasures to be protected, nurtured, and given every opportunity to flourish and reach their highest potential. In harmony with our core principles of self-reliance, Pacific Assist believes children should participate in decisions that affect them, set their own goals and strategies, and have a voice and be listened to. We are committed to seeking the best interests of children and young people and providing safe environments where their rights, needs and interests are met. Our approach to child safety and wellbeing is guided by the principles of zero tolerance of child abuse; recognition of children’s interests; sharing responsibility for safeguarding children and a risk management approach. Any alleged misconduct relating to children, including inappropriate language, inappropriate interactions, bullying, emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, and/or child pornography will be investigated thoroughly and reported to appropriate authorities in accordance with Australian law and/or the law in the countries we conduct projects.

Child Safe Organisations E-learning Modules
As part of the Child Safe Organisations project, the Australian Government commissioned the Australian Human Rights Commission to develop practical tools and resources to help organisations implement the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.
The Commission has developed a suite of e-learning modules to help organisations increase their knowledge and understanding of the National Principles and identify steps they need to take as they work towards implementing the National Principles.
