Recent changes in legislation and Pathfinder policy requires all parents and leaders involved in pathfinder events to have a government Working With Children’s Check as well as complete the online AdSafe training and and Code of Conduct.

Because of the high value we place on parents being involved with their kids and the importance of having families grow and enjoy pathfinder events and making memories together, and for pathfinders to develop mentor relationships with other adults we have endeavoured to make it as easy as possible for Parents and leaders to meet these requirements.

Please find below guided instructions and links to the relevant sites to meet the child safe policy of Kempsey Pathfinders. For more information or support please contact the Club director on 0422181443.

Please ensure you download a PDF copy of each of the 3 requirements to upload to the parent helper or leader registration page.

AdSafe Code of Conduct

It is designed to not only provide protection of our Children but also guidelines to follow to help protect yourself from false or wrongful allegations.
