Our Child Safe Commitment
SPORT INTEGRITY AUSTRALIA CHILD SAFE COMMITMENT
Sport Integrity Australia is committed to the safety and wellbeing of children. Sport Integrity Australia will ensure all staff are aware of the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations and the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework to ensure child safety and wellbeing is acknowledged throughout our work at all levels of the agency.
Sport Integrity Australia has zero tolerance to child abuse and neglect in any form. We support the rights of children. They have the right to take part in sport in a safe, positive, and enjoyable environment, where they are respected and valued. Child safety and protection remains a priority for Sport Integrity Australia now and into the future.
The Child Safe Policy (Policy) has been developed to give effect to the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework, the Australian Government directive that sets minimum standards for creating and embedding a child safe culture in Commonwealth entities and establishes the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations. The Policy gives guidance on the processes and procedures that aim to ensure children’s safety and wellbeing across all areas of the agency’s work.
This Policy is based on the following guiding principles:
- recognise children’s rights and interests
- build and maintain a child safe culture and environment
- zero tolerance of the abuse or harm to children
- use of a risk management approach to prevent the abuse or harm to children
- ensure staff are aware of and comply with relevant requirements.
