See Something – Say Something
Our club is committed to the safeguarding of children and young people and want to remind all members where and how to report safeguarding concerns. The more people who are aware of the signs of abuse and what to do if they notice them, the more able our organisation is to provide an environment which protects children and young people. The message is simple – if you see something, say something.
Reporting is easy. You can follow these steps
- If the child or young person is in immediate threat of harm or danger call 000.
- If your report relates to the allegation and/or suspicion of abuse or harm, call the Police Assistance Line on 13 14 44. They will assist and advise whether they will investigate or not.
- Regardless of whether the Police will investigate or not, report your concerns to Surf Life Saving either: Online (visit sls.com.au/safeguarding and click Make a Child Protection Report) or Face-to-face via the Member Protection Information Officer – Karen Hickmott or Nicole Locker – firstname.lastname@example.org
