Member Protection Policy
Transplant Australia is proud to be recognised by the Australian Sports Commission as a National Sporting Organisation with a Disability. This status is recognised in Federal Legislation and enables the Australian transplant team and other sporting teams under our umbrella to access the Australian Coat of Arms and be recognised as an official Australian team when travelling overseas.
A requirement of our relationship with the Australian Sports Commission is that all members abide by the Member Protection Policy.
This includes a Code of Conduct and Social Media Policy.
The Code of Conduct needs to be signed by each member prior to attendance at an Australian Transplant Games or representing Australia at the World Transplant Games. Other teams, such as the Australian Transplant Cricket Club, should liaise with the National Office to ensure all cricketers have signed the Code of Conduct. This can be done on entry to the Club as a once-off rather than per event.

The Australian Sports Commission has also recommended that Transplant Australia establish a Social Media Policy.

All members must abide by these policies.
