A safe and friendly place for children
It is a sad time that we live in when we have to take such measures to protect the innocence of our children, but I am sure that you, like me will do everything possible to protect them and keep them safe. Please read this and understand why it is being implemented. We owe a Duty of Care to our members, you and your children, to take all possible steps to protect them whilst they are in our care. This new process will add a few moments to the registration process and the DUTY sign on at the field each week but we need to comply with the legislation and I trust that you understand that we have your best interests in mind.
Please Take Note of the Following :
You will not be able to complete Registration without complying with these requirements.
The NSW government has issued a new “Volunteer / Student Declaration for Parents, Volunteers, Coaches and Officials” following recent changes in Child Protection Legislation. UDJAFC has adopted this form and its requirements must be met by our parents and volunteers. The effect of this is that we are required to Verify the Identity of any person who will be working in an unsupervised position with children. As each family is asked to perform “Parent / Helper Duties” during the season we must ask each parent/family member/friend to complete the “Volunteer/Student Declaration”
Anyone who is going to volunteer must complete the declaration.
The ONLINE REGISTRATION PROCESS will print two copies of the Declaration form.
We need two copies for EACH person, so please print extra copies if more than one person from your family is going to volunteer.
At registration you will need to bring Photo ID,
Drivers Licence or
for yourself AND your partner/relative/any other person who will be volunteering during the season, with their signed forms.
You can also complete the form and print it online at : check.kids.nsw.gov.au
Volunteers will only be allowed to assist after we have verified that they have signed the form and that their Photo ID has been checked.
