Child Safety

Our Commitment to Child Safety

Every person in the netball community has a responsibility to understand their role in ensuring the safety and well-being of children and young people in our care.

Kensington Junior Netball Club is committed to promoting and protecting the rights of children and preventing abuse from occurring by fostering a culture where children feel safe and empowered.

We also seek to ensure the cultural safety of First Nations children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds and children with a disability.

Please contact our Child Safety Officer Keryn Coster with any child safety issues or feedback.
