Statement of Commitment to being a Child Safe Organisation
At the Northern Districts Gymnastic Club (NDGC), we are strongly committed to the safety, wellbeing, and empowerment of all children and young people accessing our programs and services. We support their rights and will act immediately to ensure an environment is maintained where all participants feel safe, respected, valued, and empowered.
NDGC values the contribution of children, young people and families by fostering a culture of openness where they feel comfortable and encouraged to raise their concerns. We have a zero-tolerance approach to any form of child abuse.
We are committed to providing our employees with child safe training on an ongoing basis and we partner with parents and families to better protect children through holistic education to identify and respond to potential harm.
NDGC has adopted and implemented a tailored Child Safe Policy to complement Gymnastics Australia’s (GA) Child Safe Policy, to ensure the highest standards are achieved in respect to the protection and safety of all participants.
In addition, NDGC has several supporting policies and codes of conduct that have been created specifically to further support our members. These documents are continually reviewed to ensure they are of the highest possible standard. They are accessible on our website and in the reception area of the Club.
NDGC employs two Child Safety Officers / Member Protection Information Officers to support our Members and Staff in this essential area.
