PROPOSED - CHANGE ROOM POLICY

Added: Sun, 22nd May 2016 - 1:39


IHWA are seeking feedback from members on the proposed Change Room Policy which will be implemented once endorsed by all clubs. Can you please send all feedback to ihwa.mpio@gmail.com.

Prevention through awareness

The background to this policy is the increased awareness within sporting bodies within Australia of the requirement to provide policies and procedures to ensure the safety of junior members. Change rooms are recognised as one area where junior members have been at risk within other organisations.

IHWA seek to protect our junior members in the following ways:

  • IHWA have implemented the IHWA Ethics Framework which includes the Member Behavior Policy to ensure members understand the expected level of behavior when involved in any association activities. Take some time to read the documents which are available on the IHWA website.
  • Ensure our volunteers hold a working with children clearance or a  valid exemption and sign a member protection declaration
  • Education of clubs and volunteers through training and provision of information online
  • Implementing measures to protect juniors in areas where they are most vulnerable such as change rooms, showers or toilets

For further information to provide some context for the change room policy you can read about the types of issues being examined by the current Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse.
