CLUB POLICY

Child Safe Policy

Victoria has a Reportable Conduct Scheme to oversee allegations of child abuse and misconduct.The Scheme outlines requirements for organisations to respond to allegations of child abuse and may apply to some sporting organisations. Sporting organisations are encouraged to visit the CCYP website for more information: https://ccyp.vic.gov.au/reportable-conduct-scheme/

Victorian law requires mandatory reporting by any adult who has a reasonable belief that an instance of child sexual abuse has occurred. Information on how to report child abuse can be found here: http://www.dhs.vic.gov.au/for-individuals/children…

The Hawthorn Hockey Club Child Safe Policy can be found here.

If you have any concerns that are not covered by the mandatory reporting (above), please raise them with the Club President or The Member Protection Information Officer at Hawthorn Hockey Club via the following email address MPIO@HawthornHockey.com or Carole Shanks (whilst Johan Durst is on national team program duties).
