Statement of Commitment to Child Safety
National Baptist Basketball Carnival
National Baptist Basketball Carnival (NBBC) is committed to being a safe place for all people who engage with us including children, young people and vulnerable adults.
NBBC is committed to creating safe places because it is integral to our purpose and mission. Central to NBBC is creating space where any person within our network can thrive, contributing to and being a part of a safe community.
We want all people to be safe, happy and empowered. We support and respect all children, young adults and those who are vulnerable within our community.
We have zero tolerance for abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously.
We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are concern about safety and the well-being of those in our community.
We are committed to preventing any forms of abuse and identifying risks early, and removing and reducing these risks.
We have comprehensive procedures for recruiting, screening and managing all committee members, delegates, coaches and those volunteers in positions of leadership within our organisation.
We are committed to educating our staff and volunteers on creating safe places.
