Community guidance portal

There’s a lot to think about when it comes to safeguarding our communities in play, active recreation and sport. So, we’ve created some guidance to ensure you can embed child and member safety into your organisation’s cultures. We’ve tried to make it simple with easy-to-use policy and procedure guidelines, e-learning modules and examples of what good child and member safety practices looks like.

The guidance is for everyone involved in your club or organisation. You could be a committee member, administrator, coach, supervisor, manager, caregiver, whanau or participant.

We acknowledge and thank Play by the Rules for letting us adapt some of its work from for use in our community guidance.

Policies and e-learning

We've developed policies, and e-learning to help everyone play their part in keeping play, active recreation and sport fun, safe and inclusive for all.
