Member Protection Information Officers play an important role in sport.
They provide information and guidance on complaints procedures - they are the 'go to' person if you want to discuss problems at your club/association.
Rugby league administrators, officials, members and volunteers often have a high level of interaction with Children and Young People. As such, they play a major part in providing a safe and positive environment for them to participate. Coaches, in particular, work closely with Children and Young People, and have important responsibilities for ensuring their safety and welfare.
The NRL have developed the Safeguarding Children and Young People Framework for those who participate in the game of rugby league.
If you have any issues you would like to report to the NRL please contact us.
