Athletes Safeguarding


Participants in sport have a fundamental right to participate in a fair, safe, respectful and inclusive environment, free from all forms of harm, discrimination, abuse, violence and neglect.
Participants in sport have a fundamental right to participate in a fair, safe, respectful and inclusive environment, free from all forms of harm, discrimination, abuse, violence and neglect.

NNOC believes that all athletes, coaches, officials, staff and volunteers who wish to participate in sport, and in particular the sport of Olympic and Commonwealth Games, have a fundamental right to participate in a fair, safe, respectful and inclusive environment, free from all forms of harm, discrimination, abuse, violence and neglect.

The purpose of the policies and procedures are to safeguard athletes; protect the integrity of sport and sport organisations; protect those working within sport; and promote the values of safe sport.

The Policy assists coaches and athlete representatives in dealing with disclosures of harassment and abuse by athletes; lessen the risk of athletes suffering harassment and abuse, and thus the negative effects on athlete development.
