Safeguarding Care is about our commitment to a caring, safe, effective and connected experience for every patient every time. The Safeguarding Care Program oversees Ambulance Victoria’s approach to family violence, child safety and improvement activities that provide a safety net for victim survivors, children, vulnerable people and at-risk communities.
Ambulance Victoria is a prescribed Information Sharing Entity (ISE) under the Multi Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM). The Family Violence Protection Act (2008) informs how Ambulance Victoria will share information with other prescribed agencies under the Child information Sharing Scheme (CISS) and the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme (FVISS). All information will remain strictly confidential and will only be shared with prescribed services under legislative requirements. Read more in this information and fact sheet [PDF].
