These policies are part of Sport NZ’s overall commitment to safeguarding people involved in play, active recreation and sport. They will be supplemented with further guidance, templates, knowledge-sharing and training to support national, regional and community organisations.
We are part of a global sporting village. With all the benefits that brings, there is also greater vulnerability to the issues faced globally, such as corruption, match-fixing and doping.
Corruption is not common in Aotearoa New Zealand, and certainly not on the scale found overseas. However we can’t afford to be complacent. Being prepared will help us manage corruption if it does happen here.
While match-fixing and doping are forms of corruption, they are dealt with in separate policy documents.
This policy predominantly applies to sport organisations but some forms of corruption can occur in active recreation and play organisations, such as an employee stealing money. This policy aims to:
- support people to identify corruption
- identify the main organisations responsible for dealing with corruption in Aotearoa New Zealand
- give clear guidance for dealing with corruption
- make sure the approach taken to deal with corruption is fair and consistent, including enabling cultural appropriate responses and processes.
