Independent Complaints Process - Sports Integrity Australia and Football Australia
As you may have seen from recent reporting, Football Australia has announced the establishment of a dedicated independent complaints procedure in partnership with Sport Integrity Australia and the National Sports Tribunal. This procedure will allow Sport Integrity Australia to receive and handle complaints and reports on a range of allegations including abuse, bullying, child abuse, child grooming, endangering the safety of a child, harassment, sexual misconduct, unlawful discrimination, victimisation, and vilification at the elite levels of Australian football, including matters in the W-League competition.
Sport Integrity Australia will receive submissions from 1 November 2021 through to 31 January 2022. Further details about the independent process is available here: Independent Complaints Handling Process (Football Australia) | Sport Integrity Australia.
