Description

The cluster focus for Term 1, 2018 will be supporting staff/colleagues who disclose family violence we will have the opportunity to also work on policy and process around staff or student disclosures as part of the cluster meeting.


Please bring with you any documents you would like to share, review or update with the benefit of the knowledge and expertise in the room.
