Policies

This section outlines our administrative policies and procedures in the following areas:

Participants Protection Policy (May 2018)
This policy is for the general protection of all participants at TSA events and activities,
including those who are involved in organising or leading activities.

Inclusion and Diversity Policy (September 2019)

The TSA endeavours to promote inclusion and social cohesion by recognising cultural, linguistic, religious and gender diversity as integral to providing a welcoming and safe community for all.

The TSA understands that a community valuing diversity and respecting differences benefits all.

We commit to broadening the understanding amongst our members of discrimination, offending actions and remarks, as well as unintended offence at our activities and events.

We strive to be respectful and open to different cultural perspectives, recognising that diversity training and monitoring should be an obligatory component of all TSA activities, events and recruitment.

The TSA recognises the complexities of what it means to ‘represent a community’. We believe no individual, unless delegated by the Regional Council, speaks for the whole community and therefore that the TSA should not be stigmatised for the actions or opinions of individuals.

We oppose all forms of discrimination and religious vilification.

The TSA acknowledges the unique position of the First Nations people of Australia.
