Member Protection, Welfare and Support Team
The Wauchope-Bonny Hills SLSC Member Protection, Welfare, Chaplaincy and Support Team are club members who have volunteered to be independent and confidential persons to protect, represent and listen to our members at times when our members need help, are involved in an unpleasant experience, or wish to report an incident which is in breach of WBHSLSC’s code of conduct. Furthermore, this team are a support network for our members who are experiencing “tough times” or just need someone to talk to.
If you would like a confidential conversation with one of the Member Protection, Welfare and Support Team Members, please reach out to them directly.
