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 ([email protected]).
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.
