Football Australia and its affiliated Football Entities aims to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all Members participating in football. Everyone involved in our sport should be treated with respect and dignity and be free to participate without being discriminated against, harassed, bullied or abused.
All Children and Adults at Risk should be able to enjoy participating in football in a safe, supportive and empowering environment. Football Entities recognise that it is the responsibility of every Member to safeguard the welfare and wellbeing of all Children and Adults at Risk and Football Entities aim to ensure that our sport has an environment where everyone is empowered to protect themselves and one another.
All Members, in particular a Child or Adult at Risk, should feel comfortable, and be encouraged to, speak up and report any concerns they may have or be aware of in relation to the safeguarding of Children and Adults at Risk in football.
The Governing Bodies acknowledge that staff, members and volunteers provide a valuable contribution to the experiences of Children and Adults at Risk involved in football. The Governing Bodies aim to continue this and to take measures to protect the safety and wellbeing of all Children and Adults at Risk participating in football.
