To mark Children’s First Awareness Week we held an open day to raise awareness and support for the Children’s First Act 2015. This act outlines how to identify and report child abuse. It focuses on key steps to protecting children for mandated persons. 


Events have been organised by our Nursing Committee for all staff during this Awareness Week. Staff are invited to take a quiz about the act with prizes to be won.


At the Mater Private, each employee is educated on the Children’s First Act when they commence  employment here; this week is a great way to remind the staff of their roles and responsibilities.  The safety and welfare of children is the responsibility of everyone, regardless of role or grade.
