If someone is in danger/ being hurt right now, please call the police in your country immediately.
”Hagar Australia takes someone doing the wrong thing very seriously. If you aren’t sure, please report any concern or alleged incident that relates to Hagar Australia.
After you report something, Hagar Australia will phone or email you (if you have provided these details). You don’t have to include your name but this helps us when we contact you. If someone has been harmed, we will put their needs and interests at the centre of everything we do from that time on, including finding out how we can help and what they want to happen. To find out more, please read Hagar Australia’s Incident Reporting Procedure.
We will look into your report quickly, carefully and privately, only talking to people who need to know. This might include the Executive Director and/ or Board Chair. We will be open and fair, in the way we do things, to everyone involved, and we will keep detailed notes. Where we can, we won’t use your name/ the name of the person who has been harmed. Hagar Australia will take any early action that is needed.
If we can contact you, we will phone or email you regularly with updates but, at a minimum, we will contact you when we start looking into your report, part-way through and when we have finished looking into it. There may be times when we can’t tell you what has happened as a result of your report, especially if it involves disciplinary action.
To find out more about how we investigate reports, please read Hagar Australia’s Investigation Procedure.
After Looking into a Report

- dismissing, suspending or transferring a Hagar Australia person;
