Member protection & child safety

SA legislation requires organisations that provide services for children, create and maintain a child safe environment. This requires policies and procedures to be developed to support this.

All members however, who sign up to a sport or recreation organisation, can rightly expect that they will also be protected from harassment, discrimination or harm from others in the organisation.

Member Protection Policies which incorporate a child safe policy are adopted by many organisations.

Training is available to support this.

Sport SA, through a contractual arrangement with the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing (ORSR) has been engaged to deliver the following courses.

  • Child Safe Officer (CSO)
  • Complaint Handling (CH)
  • Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO)

If you would like register for a course, or facilitate training specific for your club or association, please contact Sport SA at membership@sportsa.org.au or https://www.sportsa.org.au/trng/ for more information.
