As we stated earlier today, the Australian Air League is committed to child safety and wholeheartedly endorses the intention of the National Redress Scheme.
Every child has the right to feel safe and supported.
Over the last few months, the League has engaged expert external advice and has also been working closely with the National Redress Scheme to develop and refine our policies and processes, including our robust child safety policies, to ensure we appropriately manage potential claims or complaints.
Our intention has always been to prioritise victim survivors in line with the League’s values and commitment to child safety.
Our members are the lifeblood of our organisation and throughout the day, we have received strong feedback from them and our wider community.
As a result, the Australian Air League has signed and submitted the letter of intent to join the National Redress Scheme.
We did not take this decision lightly, however our members have made it clear they believe the best way for the Australian Air League to support victim survivors is through the National Redress Scheme. We thank all of our members for their feedback.
As we have been doing, we will continue to work cooperatively and productively with the scheme as well as ensure we have all the appropriate mechanisms in place to support victim survivors of historical cases and to appropriately manage any claims or complaints.
We remain steadfastly committed to child safety and creating a safe and positive environment for all of our members to thrive.
