CHILD SAFEGUARDING

Sport has been going through its own #metoo movement since the USA Gymnastics scandal from 2017, with Australia seeing it’s own surge of public disclosures since 2020 from Gymnastics, Swimming, and Hockey to name a few. Our goal is to make sport safe, fun and inclusive for all Australians.

These issues grow from grassroots, and continue up into elite high performance programs. There are a few basic and simple steps that everyone can take to get us on the right track; check policies/processes, ask questions & seek answers to some tough and sometimes uncomfortable topics.

All persons in your community have their own responsibilities and obligations within not just the sport they participate in, but also some legislative requirements for certain roles (depending on location and responsibilities). 

(RESOURCES AND MORE INFORMATION WILL BE UPDATED SOON) - please make an inqiry in the form below if you have any questions or quetions in the child safeguarding space.
