Child Safeguarding

Safeguarding children and young people

Children and young people have the right to be safe from abuse at all times, including when they are in sporting environments.

The ASC is strongly committed to safe, supportive and friendly environments where children and young people are valued and enjoy sport. As part of our commitment, the ASC has adopted the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework and publishes an annual statement to outline our compliance with the framework.

The ASC Child Safe Commitment Statement and Child Safe Policy is part of the ASC’s proactive and preventative approach to upholding its commitment to the safety, wellbeing, participation and empowerment of all children accessing the ASC’s programs, services and facilities.
