Statement of Guiding Principles

Sport Inclusion Australia in adopting the Sport Integrity Australia National Integrity Framework has done so based on the need to ensure the following principles are followed by all who are a party to the Framework policies.

These principles are:

  1. To ensure education programs are in place which enable the people that the NSOD represents to be aware of the policies.
  2. To ensure communication tools are in place that will enhance the education of the people that the NSOD represents.
  3. To acknowledge that the people that the NSO represents who are covered by the policies are potentially more at risk of being affected, abused, manipulated, or used.

The following is the definition of people at risk:

  • Persons under the age of 18; or
  • Persons aged 18 or over, but are unable to take care of themselves, or are unable to protect themselves against harm or exploitation, by reason of age, illness, trauma or disability, or any other reason.
  1. To ensure all policies are written, presented and accessible in all forms in plain language and documents and programs are presented in a consistent and easily accessible format.
  2. To ensure that the Improper use of Drugs and Medicine Policy is clearly explained to all parties to take into consideration the special needs (e.g., medication) of the people that the NSO represents.
