Child Safe & Wellbeing

As a society, it is our responsibility to protect children and ensure their safety. It is important for organisations to have clear and comprehensive child safe policies in place.

All children who visit gymnastics clubs have a right to feel and be safe. Clubs should be committed to promoting and maintaining a culture that does not permit or tolerate child abuse, neglect, or exploitation. The priority is to ensure the welfare and safety of every child that has contact with customers, team members, volunteers, and contractors.

RGA is committed to promoting the cultural safety of First Nations children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, LGBTQIA+ children, children with disability, and their families.

Employee trusted and child safe adults – who are screened and care about children and young people

Prioritise concerns reported – as a matter of urgency without judgement or blame
