This has led to the creation of a ‘RAV Child Safety Manual’ – which demonstrates the strong commitment of Relationships Australia Victoria and all staff to maintain child safe and child friendly environments in the provision of our services.

The Child Safety Manual outlines a core set of Principles, Policies and Procedures that will underpin every aspect of RAV service design and delivery.
