Access, equity & fairness policy


CCF SA is committed to providing a clear and transparent ethical and legal position in regards to the provision of open access and equity to all stakeholders of the organisation.


This document provides information regarding the way CCF SA will ensure that its services are provided so that all stakeholders feel they have, and have been, treated equitably and fairly.

It is the policy of CCF SA to ensure an environment that is:

  • safe and equitable through zero tolerance of any form of harassment, bullying, discrimination and/or racial vilification;
  • a child safe environment;
  • as a minimum, aligned with State and Federal legislation.


CCF SA’s Access and Equity policy is based in the following principles:

  • Anti-Discrimination, Human Rights, Equal Opportunity & Disability Discrimination

**Many forms of harassment and all forms of bullying are prosecutable offences under Australian law.  CCF SA will notify Police in the event of such incidences occurring.


Bullying is behaviour of a physical, written, verbal or non-verbal nature, directed toward an individual or group of individuals and which is considered unreasonable or anti-social behaviour that is offensive, degrading, intimidating or humiliating.  This behaviour can include but is not limited to public reprimand or behaviour intended to punish, ridicule, insult, or may be based in unsubstantiated allegations and cruelty.

Harassment is an unwelcome and unwarranted behaviour that offends, intimidates, humiliates or embarrasses another person.  This behaviour can be written, physical, verbal or visual in nature. Harassment is not necessarily deliberate or intentional and can be one incident or several incidents occurring over a period of time. Harassment may be accompanied by an expressed or implied threat.  Harassment and bullying are unwelcome, unsolicited and non-reciprocated behaviours.  They may be intentional or unintentional and may take many forms, such as verbal, written or physical.  Regardless of the intent or form it takes, the distress caused to the victim is the same.
