Child Protection at NMIT

To protect the safety and promote the wellbeing of children/tamariki and young persons/rangatahi aged under 18 years who are receiving services from any staff member of our organisation, or are associated with adults who are receiving services from any staff member of our organisation. This policy ensures that possible abuse or neglect of children/tamariki or young persons/rangatahi is identified and appropriately responded to.

This policy also provides a Safety Checking framework for new and existing staff. The policy provides guidance on how to respond to an allegation made against a worker; how to treat confidential information; and how to share information appropriately.
