Task

  1. Within your current role, you are required to provide meals to clients who require assistance in this area. Another worker, Jonah, does not bring lunch to work and has told you he does not see the point in buying lunch when half the clients don’t eat their meals anyway. You notice him taking some food from the prepacked meals, and eating some leftovers when collecting some of the trays. One particular client has noticed this and has asked you what she can do to stop it happening.

How can you assist the client in lodging a complaint?

  1. As a worker in child related employment in your State/Territory, what steps do you need to take when making a report of child abuse to your State/Territory child protection service?

As part of your answer, you must provide the policy and/or procedure from your work placement on how to report child abuse to your State/Territory child protection service. This policy can be altered so that it does not identify your work placement service.
