Safeguarding Children & Young People
You can never play too safely. We’re committed to promoting and protecting the wellbeing of everyone who participates in AFL at any level. Our culture is built on a “Be Safe, Feel Safe, Play Safe” mindset.
While we do our best to minimise risk, concussions can happen. So we’ve developed a volume of resources and host regular webinars with medical professionals to ensure you’re prepared for concussion discussions.
If an incident directly impacts your club, we want you to be prepared. Use these resources to help your club develop a plan, feel confident in executing it, and know when/where to seek further help.
Mental Health & Wellbeing
Handy resources to support football communities to become mentally fit and healthy places.
Plus, tips to help clubs respond to mental health challenges and promote mental fitness, including how your club can register for the Movember Ahead of the Game program.
Complaints & Integrity
Have something to report? Our AFL Integrity Reporting Portal is available for a range of reasons including discrimination/vilification, safeguarding children and young people, salary cap, security, and more.

Conflict is a reality of running any organisation, so it’s important Community Clubs are on the front foot of conflict management. Learn how to prevent conflict and navigate unhealthy conflict here.
