AEBF Member Protection Policy

Depending on the size of your club, you could consider appointing a designated Member Protection Information Officer to be the central contact for any concerns or information about harassment, sexual abuse or inappropriate behaviour.

A member protection information officer would ensure your club handled complaints in an appropriate and consistent manner. They do not investigate complaints but help the person with the concern to deal with what has happened.

Appointing someone in the role who is approachable, accessible and able to maintain confidentiality ensures people in your club have someone supportive to go to with their concerns and to access information.
