Present day standards require that organisations involving children have a child protection policy. TEERA SMC has sought guidance from several bodies, settling primarily on Play by the Rules.
Play by the Rules is a collaboration between Sport Australia, the Australian Human Rights Commission, all state and territory departments of sport and recreation, and other government agencies. A TEERA SMC member has completed the course ‘PBTR - Child Protection’.
TEERA has now developed a draft Child Protection Policy and is seeking feedback from members.
The draft Policy is available here.
Members are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the draft Policy and provide any feedback here.
