Child Protection Policy & Procedure

The Lewisham wrestling club and youth association believes that taking part in our sport should be a positive and enjoyable part of any child’s life. We will make sure that all children are protected and kept safe from physical, sexual and emotional harm while they are with the Club’s coaches, helpers and other volunteers.

 

In order to ensure this is the case the following aims are to be striven for at all times. As part of the vetting procedure for any helper or coach each individual must state that he/she will do everything in their power to uphold these aims:

  1. Any adult who wishes to Coach or assist in the administration of the LWC and YA will have been interviewed, undertaken a CRB approved check and asked to sign the approved form ‘Adults wishing to supervise Children and young people team’
  2. All coaches must have relevant initial beginner coaching course before they begin working with children.

First Aid Procedure

    We provide professional First Aid service during all activities as a limited care for an illness or injury, which we provide to any sick or injured members until definitive medical treatment can be accessed, or until the illness or injury is fully dealt with.

  1. Immediate action is take in the cause of an accident, without any cause of panic.
  2. Our first priority is to yourself and members - we ensure that all members are protected and a risk accessment is evaluated.
  3. Where necessary medical professionals are called.

Health & Safety

    Our organisation treats health and safety in the workplace very securiously, whether it's learning to use a piece of machinery or visiting our organisation we ensure safety by having a properly stocked first-aid kit available and operation manuals for appliances.

     

    We regularly consult with our volunteers and members, on the procedures that will safeguard their well-being by producing safety handbooks, literatures and displaying appropriate notices. This guide explains the legal requirements of notifying everyone within your workplace about health and safety and gives practical advice on steps to take.

Equal Opportunity

    Our Equal Opportunity policy outlines the guidelines and procedures for all committee members, volunteers and members in dealing with enquires and complaints of discrimination and harassment by all sex, gender, race and age.

     

    Discrimination and harassment are unacceptable behaviour and are serious issues which undermine morale and can adversely affect the ability of committee members, volunteers and member to achieve their full potential within the organisation.

     

    Policy and procedures for resolving complaints of discrimination and harassment have been adopted by our organisation by:

    • promoting a decent work and tolerance environment which is free from discrimination and harassment;
    • provide an internal procedure for dealing with issues and complaints of discrimination and harassment which may arise;
    • meet the requirements of State and Federal legislation, and the organisation's current Equity and Diversity Management Plan.
