These policies and guidelines are based upon numerous Client Protection Policies and Regulations, many of which have been referenced. The core expectation of any responsible organisation requires us to treat all Persons with fairness and dignity and to care for those who are less powerful and in need of nurture and protection.
All relevant organisations within Australia are bound by Federal and State legislation and principles established through common law.
Insurance companies are increasingly requiring organisations to have such policies..
Matthew 22:37-40 NIV 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 18:6 NIV “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea”
Colossians 3:12-14 NIV 12 Therefore, as God’s chosen Persons, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
