As an organisation that offers a variety of services and programs to young people and children, we pride ourselves on making every possible effort to ensure young people and children are aware of their rights and feel safe when accessing our services.
As part of a recent client feedback survey we conducted, it was clear that this is both, noticed by our young clients, and that it is also important to them. We received the following quote from clients of our Crisis Accommodation Support Service (CASS) that demonstrate this:
‘While at CASS I have noticed inclusiveness. Staff and other resident’s have accepted lots of different people who may not normally be accepted by others. I’ve felt safe there because I have been welcomed for who I am.’
‘I really like that the workers use the right pronouns. This makes me feel accepted here.’
