MPIO Contacts for the NT


Swimming Australia takes its responsibilities and obligations for child welfare seriously, and is dedicated to providing a safe environment for all members in our sport. Swimming Australia does this by adopting both a Child Welfare Policy and Member Welfare Policy and by nominating Member Protection Information Officers (MPIOs) to handle all enquiries relating to these policies.

It is our commitment to our members to ensure that everyone associated with Swimming Australia complies with our policy and guiding principles of child welfare.

As Australians we greatly value the essence of sport in our culture and our community, and we all have the right to enjoy our sport of swimming in a safe, fun and enriching environment. As such, Swimming Australia is committed to the health, safety and general well-being of all its members.

Member and Child Welfare / Junior Sport Policy

Member and Child Welfare Policies

The Member and Child Welfare Policies are an essential part of Swimming Australia's proactive and preventative approach to tackling inappropriate behaviour. We are committed to ensuring that everyone associated with Swimming Northern Territory complies with these policies and ask all members and stakeholders to assist in promoting these policies wherever possible.

It is the responsibility of everyone involved in swimming to be aware of these policies, as they are applicable to all Swimming Australia (and therefore all Swimming Northern Territory) stakeholders, directors, employees, volunteers and members, whether they are in a paid or unpaid voluntary capacity.

The Member and Child Welfare Policies and Codes of Conduct assist in ensuring that every person involved in the sport of swimming is treated with respect and dignity, is safe and protected from abuse.

Junior Sport Policy

Free Online Member and Child Welfare Course

As a sport, we are proud to lead the way in ensuring a safe and harassment-free environment for all members and are providing a free online course to assist in educating all swimming personnel.

The purpose of this course and the new Member Welfare Policy is to define acceptable behaviour and what we can do if unacceptable behaviour does occur.
