Keeping Children Safe – Volunteers

Regent College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

This approach is reflected in thinking, policy and practice, in areas including:

  • appointment of staff
  • duty of care
  • keeping children safe curriculum
  • guidelines for volunteers



Commencing 2016, volunteers will be required to read guidelines and sign a declaration prior to serving in the College. Some volunteers will require a Working with Children Check before they can volunteer. 

The declaration is intended to support volunteers with a clear set of practices considered essential in keeping our children safe.

The guidelines and declaration is available to read and complete, in person, at College Administration, or via the following link -
