Documented policies and codes of conduct are critical for any organisation to implement the Standards, prevent child abuse, harm and promote the well-being and safety of children.
The Netball Australia Child Safeguarding Policy aims to create safe environments for children and young people in netball and relates to complaints about their safety and well-being.
The Child Safety Practices outlines the expected behaviour for interactions within netball in Victoria and aligns with the Child Safeguarding Policy. The primary aim of the code is to protect and safeguard children and young people.
The policy and code of conduct will guide people in the netball community by describing how we will promote well-being and prevent and respond to child safety issues. Their role is to provide clear guidance so that leaders, staff, volunteers, children and their families understand how things are done, what they can expect and what they are expected to do.
