Codes and Policies

Child Safe Commitment

Rugby AU is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all Children involved in our sport and our policies, frameworks and procedures seek to address risks to Child safety and to ensure a Child safe culture. Our policies are accessible and in a form that are easy to understand, have been informed by stakeholder consultation and are communicated to children and their families, our staff/volunteers and the public. We will regularly review our policies, consult and advise our staff/volunteers of any changes.

We will ensure that child safety is embedded in our organisation's culture, reflected in our policies and procedures, and understood and practiced at all levels of our sport. We will seek to ensure that all those involved in the delivery of rugby services to Children understand their roles and expected standards of behaviour in relation to keeping them safe from abuse and neglect through the application of this Policy, Member Protection Policy and the Code of Conduct. All of us in the rugby community have a role to play in ensuring that we keep our sport as safe and enjoyable as possible.

We are committed to building an environment that is both child-safe and child-friendly. Together we can provide an environment in which children feel respected, valued and encouraged to reach their full potential.
