If you have an issue and wish to lodge a complaint the first step is to refer to your organisation's Member Protection Policy or grievance procedure for the appropriate process for lodging a complaint.
If you are not sure whether the organisation has a policy -
Avoid discussing your issue with others on the sideline or in the car park as this can lead to unpleasant gossip and risk of incorrect information being passed around.
Your organisation may have a complaints person or grievance officer who can provide advice on the appropriate process and help manage the complaint.
If you wish to seek advice outside of the club and you are affiliated with a State Association you may contact them for advice or ask to speak with the association's Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO). These people are trained to offer you support and advice.
If you require further advice you may call ORS phone 1300 714 990 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
