Child Protection Policy
Protecting children from abuse is a responsibility of the entire community
Through the implementation of strategies that assist in preventing child abuse the AFL(NSW/ACT) Comission has taken a pro-active role in relation to child protection.
The Commission is committed to ensuring that the safety, welfare and well being of children and young people is maintained at all times during their participation in activities run by the Commission and its member bodies.
The Commission aims not only to promote a safe environment for all children but to assist all staff, officials, coaches and volunteers to follow the appropriate notification procedures when reporting alleged abuse.
The reporting mechanism through XYZ Football Association is via:
· The Association/League Child Protection Representative.
· DOCS(Department of Community Services) 132 111
· NSW Police 131 444
