Service expectations relate to the Early Morning Centre (EMC) and surrounding area.
Acceptable conduct for all guests, staff and volunteers is behaviour based on respect, for oneself, other people present, and the physical environs of the EMC.
Physical assault, swearing, yelling, verbal abuse, sexual harassment or damage to person or property are not acceptable behaviours in the EMC. Staff and volunteers are not expected to tolerate slurs of a racial or sexual nature and have a right to feel safe in their working environment.
Other behaviours that are not acceptable are illegal activities such as drug use and/or exchange. Alcohol and smoking are not permitted in the EMC, either inside the premises or in the outside area that forms part of the EMC and the Canberra City Uniting Church.
