Clubs that Care

St Joseph’s Football & Netball Club cares about its members and their welfare.

In recent times, there has been growing concerns about illegal drug use in the broader community. We want to make sure this does not impact or infiltrate our club.

We have joined forces with many other clubs, including GFL clubs Lara, Grovedale, St Mary’s and Leisure Networks to get on the ”front foot”:

  • To establish a Wellbeing Team, who will be your “go to” if you have concerns. We expect to be able to announce the Wellbeing Team in a matter of days.
  • To train our Wellbeing Team around referring people to Alcohol and Drug agencies
  • Provide support to those we have concerns about, and
  • To develop Illegal Drug Policy and Procedures, which will include club sanctions around drug use

Leisure Networks as your Regional Sports Assembly has worked with the Barwon Child Youth and Family and the Australian Drug Foundation to develop the Clubs That Care program, to support clubs to combat illegal drugs and to assist people in the most appropriate ways.

This program has the unanimous support of the Club’s Committee, and the Committee feels very strongly about the effective implementation of the program at our club.

Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime if you have any concerns, or would like to know more about what we are doing, feel free to contact David Tudor on 0448 987029 or david.tudor@bendigobank.com.au. David oversees our football welfare program, and is taking a Club-wide leadership role in this matter.

Regards
SJFNC Committee
