Child Safe Policy

Child Safe Policy

Moana SLSC’s commitment to Safeguarding Children and Young people.

Moana SLSC is committed to the Safeguarding of Children and Young People, under the age of 18, and acknowledges that a child-safe organisation doesn’t just happen; it requires conscious action to protect children from harm.

It is imperative that we provide a safe and supportive environment for children and young people, that focuses on fun, education and building the confidence of our people through positive learning and development.

Moana’s core values include being open, welcoming and inclusive and building stronger and safer communities for everyone. Moana SLSC empowers and expects all Moana club members, board members, and licensees and any organization using our club, to create and maintain a safe culture for children and young people.

Moana SLSC is committed to reducing the risks of abuse and harm to Children and Young People, and will ensure all members, board members, licensees and any organisations using our club, understand and adhere to SLSA’s Member Protection Policy.

Safeguarding Children and young people is everyone’s business.
