Central to the effectiveness of providing a safe, supportive and inclusive club environment is the access to Player Welfare Services. The Player Welfare Manager’s role is to provide confidential assistance and support with regards to the well being of any club player, coach, or official. This includes facilitating access to all available services including psychologists, physiotherapists, financial advisors/planners, lawyers, accountants, and real estate agents. This is not limited to club related issues and may include areas such as below:
- Employment and Education
- Drugs and Alcohol
- Mental Health
- Gambling/Financial Issues
- Personal Relationships
The Player Welfare Manager will also be required to manage any alcohol/drug related incidents observed and/or reported as occurring at sanctioned club events and functions in conjunction with the President and Vice President and report back to the Committee. Confidentiality will be maintained at all times however coaches will be kept informed where appropriate. The role is also an important component of the club’s duty of care of its members, playing and non-playing. However, whilst the club is committed to providing support to the CPO group, each person must accept that they as individuals have a responsibility by their own actions at all times. Any queries regarding this policy may be directed to the Davide Musolino (Player Welfare Manager) at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0425 747 026 or any representative of the Committee.
