Under the Children’s Protection Act 1993, UniSA must ensure that an assessment of a person’s suitability to work with children is undertaken for all persons appointed to a prescribed position, or who carry out prescribed functions for UniSA, whether they are an employee, volunteer, agent, contractor or subcontractor.
This means that if you are entering any UniSA campus in an official role in some form or another, you may be required by law to be a mandatory notifier. To understand your obligations, view our mandatory notifcation section.
There are exemptions for some persons and positions that don’t require a child-related employment screening. These are listed in Section 14 of the Children’s Protection Regulations (2010).
Always call 000 in an emergency.
If you are concerned about a child and feel you have a reasonable suspicion that a child is being abused or neglected, phone the Child Abuse Report Line (CARL) 13 14 78.
Remember, the report line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
For more information about what you as concerned member of the public need to include in your report, see the sa.gov.au website.
