Use of electronic communication in residences

This key information outlines how to help keep children and young people safe when using media, music, games and electronic devices.

Staff are responsible for managing children and young people’s appropriate use of media, music, games and publications within the residence. We have an obligation to keep children and young people safe and to protect them from potentially harmful content.

Note: Children and young people cannot have access to mobile phones or the internet while in the residence unless it is specified in their operational plan.
