Member Protection

Member Screening

The CBSLSC Member Screening Policy is designed to align with current state-based legislation and ensure a best-practice approach to safeguarding children and young people in sporting environments.

Working With Children Check

Members of Coogee Beach SLSC may be asked by the club to obtain a Working With Children Check as per the our Member Screening Policy.

The Working With Children Check (WWCC) aims to increase the safety of children in our community by helping to prevent people who have a criminal history that indicates they may harm children.

Checks cost $11.00 for volunteers and $85.00 for employees. WWC forms need to be collected from either your club or Australia Post. The applicant submits their form at their local POST office.

Surf Life Saving Australia has a number of policies and documents with which clubs and members should make themselves familiar.

Any matter relating to the abuse or suspected abuse of children and young people (CYP), under the age of 18, must be reported.

For other grievances or complaints, members should seek out our club Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO). Our MPIO will provide you with information about your rights, responsibilities and options.

Member Protection Information Officers

A Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) is responsible for the provision of information about a person’s rights, responsibilities and options when an individual is making a complaint or concern. MPIOs are impartial; they do not mediate or investigate complaints, they simply provide information regarding the complaints process. All discussions with the MPIO are confidential.
