We recognise that some people are more at risk than others.
- age-related risk (including children, young people and older people)
- risk related to gender and/or sexuality
- risk for people with cognitive disability and/or mental health issues
- risk for people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) or Indigenous backgrounds
- people who use augmented and complex communication
- people who need help managing their finances
- people who depend a lot on services and who lack other social supports.
You have the right to feel safe, and be safe, all the time.
You can say ‘no’ if you are asked to do something that makes you feel unsafe.
It is not OK for someone to hurt you or hurt your feelings.
If you ever feel unsafe, you can tell us, and we will listen.
If you are not happy with the way you are being treated, tell someone you trust.
