All children and young people have the right to be involved in play, active recreation and sport in an environment that promotes their wellbeing and is safe.
MIGS is committed to having a culture of safeguarding and child protection in place, to provide an environment where children and young people are protected from harm and abuse. We do this by having a full range of standards, codes and policies, as well as trained, safe people working with our children and young people.
We will take every concern about a child or young person’s safety seriously and will respond appropriately.
Please refer to our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy as well as the Sports New Zealand https://sportnz.org.nz/resources/child-protection/ and Safe Guarding Children New Zealand https://safeguardingchildren.org.nz/ for further information.
