Child Protection Policy and Background Check Procedures

New Australian Child Protection Policy and Background Check Procedures

Following consideration of the feedback provided by our members we have finalised our new Child Protection Policy and Background Check Procedures, with only small changes. I encourage everyone to read the new policies which you will find published in this issue of Pegasus, and on the SCA Ltd website. These policy documents apply only in Australia.

The Children’s policy is effective immediately.The background checks will commence immediately for any activities under the forthcoming Youth Combat or Youth and Family Achievement (YAFA) program. Other currently scheduled children’s activities shall have until 1 May to comply with the background checks procedure, in order for members to acquire background checks where needed. I encourage all members involved in children’s activities to act upon these policies promptly as the processing time of background checks can vary considerably.

I know this will cause some disruption, but this is necessary to maintain compliance with mundane laws and to increase what the SCA offers to our minor members. Please help us spread the word regarding these new policies.
