Child Safe Code of Behaviour
RDA seeks to provide a safe, fair and inclusive environment for everyone involved in our
organisation, programs and activities. Safety in RDA is not just about protection from injuries that may occur from horse related sports. The Safeguarding Children Framework seeks to expand considerations of ‘safe’ to be any situation which may be frightening, confusing or harmful to a child or young person’s physical, emotional and/or mental well-being.
RDA activities involve people with disabilities including vulnerable adults. This framework includes a culture that is safe and respectful to our vulnerable adults as well as the children and young people involved in our activities as participants and volunteers. The framework is designed to provide clear guidelines to RDA staff and volunteers about appropriate behaviours.
