Newport SLSC is committed to providing a safe inclusive environment for our members. As such it is important that all members are aware of our policies and procedures:
- The Surf Life Saving Australia Member Protection Policy
- Newport SLSC Constitution
- All other policies can be viewed on the Surf Life Saving NSW, or Surf Life Saving Australia websites: SLSNSW www.surflifesaving.com.au | SLS Australia www.slsa.com.au.
Our member Protection Officer is Ted Bruce.
It is important that all Patrolling Members have signed the Member Protection Declaration and it is recorded in SurfGuard. In addition to this; from 1 April 2015 members who have contact with children also need to complete a working with children check. A Working With Children Check is a prerequisite for anyone in child-related work. It involves a national criminal history check and review of findings of workplace misconduct and is free for volunteer work.
