MLC AQUATIC COMMITMENT TO CHILD SAFETY

 

MLC Aquatic is committed to the safety, participation and empowerment of all children. All members of our community, including employees, contractors, agency staff and volunteers, have an important role in providing children or young people with a safe and nurturing environment in which to prosper and thrive. MLC Aquatic has zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently within our policies and procedures and the Swimming Australia – Safe Sport Framework. MLC Aquatic has a duty of care to protect the safety and welfare of all children and is committed to preventing child abuse through identifying risks early, and removing and reducing these risks. We have robust human resources and recruitment practices, supported by regular training and development.

 

We support and respect all children, as well as all members of our community. We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, the cultural safety of children from a culturally and/or linguistically diverse background, and to providing a safe environment for children with a disability.

All members are bound by the following policies which can be read here by clicking the links:
