Purpose of Member Protection
The Member Protection Information Officer is an informal sounding board to listen to complaints and give direction on the internal and external processes available to help resolve complaints.
The Member Protection Policy aims to assist RUSA to uphold its core values and create a safe, fair and inclusive environment for everyone associated with our sport. It sets out our commitment to ensure that every person bound by the policy is treated with respect and dignity and protected from discrimination, harassment and abuse. It also seeks to ensure that everyone involved in our sport is aware of their key legal and ethical rights and responsibilities, as well as the standards of behaviour expected of them.
The policy describes the practical steps we will take to eliminate discrimination, harassment, child abuse and other forms of inappropriate behaviour from our sport. As part of this commitment, the policy allows RUSA to take disciplinary action against any person or organisation bound by this policy if they breach the policy.
Each Club has its own Member Protection Contact. If you do not want to speak with someone at your club, Rugby Union SA has its own Officer – Rose Jackson. Contact details are: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0428 367 109
