Member Protection Information Officer or MPIO- An MPIO is responsible for providing information about a persons rights, responsibilities and options to an individual making a complaint or raising a concern. They can also provide information and advice to sport administrators and complaint handlers with regard to the Member Protection Policy of that sport. MPIO?s are generally impartial, they don?t mediate or investigate complaints. They may reside in a club, the state association or a national sports organisation.
The MPIO can play a key role in ensuring your sport is safe, fair and inclusive. MPIO?s do this through ensuring club people and administrators know their rights and responsibilities and ensuring policy?s that focus on member protection are being implemented. Such policies may include but are not limited to the complaints policy and procedures, child protection policies, harassment and discrimination policies for full details on the Associations policies please see the policy tab on our website www.pcansw.org.au
