Following a draft being made available for comment, the TEERA SMC has adopted the Child Protection Policy.
ROCs are asked to become familiar with the policy and be guided by it.
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’.
The Policy is based on the Play by the Rules recommendation and is available here.
