Attn Junior Activity Chairs
On behalf of our State Director of Member Services Kerry, I would like to thank you all for your support in the delivery of Junior Activities this season. We have really appreciated the increased focus on training and safety that you been part of, and can see some the feedback around the state that there are thousands of nippers who are enjoying being back on the beach.
We are keen to share a great opportunity for you and your club Age Managers to take part in a feedback forum which is focused specifically around safeguarding children and young people in Surf Life Saving. As our JACs, Age Managers and Parents have such a close link to our youth members, we are really keen for feedback, insights and thoughts about how surf lifesaving is supporting members in this space and what we can do better. We are hosting a number of other forums with key membership groups including a youth member session, Patrol Captains and Club Presidents to gain insights from these areas also.
This forum will be facilitated by Safeguarding guru Morgan Lander who brings a wealth of practical and professional knowledge in the child safety space. Morgan will provide an update on what safeguarding practices are in place, engage with members about what safeguarding means to the group as well as identifying what surf life saving could be doing better which will help the organisation shape our next steps in this space.
Please share the following forum details with Age Managers and Parents who would be willing to provide us with their thoughts and experiences that would be ideal.
Age Manager / Parents Feedback Forum – Tuesday 1st December (7.30-8.15pm)
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about this project, or any membership questions you have.
