Values -
Participant Agreement

Acknowledgement

Created with recognition and gratitude to the peoples of the Whadjuk and Binjareb language groups of the Noongar nation. We acknowledge them and their ancestors as the first custodians of the now named Perth coastal and Dwellingup lands.

Principles

Safety is EVERYBODY’S Job
We will have Covid-19 and other safety plans in operation throughout. There is a FIRST-AID Station and SAFETY team can be identified by Bandannas. Your participation assumes an agreement to abide by On-site Safety Protocols. If any participant feels unsafe (physically or in any way) they need only clearly speak the word ‘SAFETY’. Everyone who hears the word ‘safety’ called will immediately cease activity.

Inclusion
There are no pre-requisites or preferences for participation here – every person is a valued Participant whose presence uniquely enriches us all.

Mutual Support
At the core of transformative change lies a truth around our interdependence. Be ready, willing and able to offer and receive support from others. While some activities may be conducted by ‘therapy practitioners’, no activities here are offered as ‘therapy’.

Authenticity
Every individual is entitled to discover, exercise and rely on their own inner voice. That expression is welcomed free from the judgements of others.

Sovereignty
Every person has the right to make decisions about their own body, property, personal space, thoughts and feelings. Engagement in any activity or interaction is entirely voluntary. Speaking over others will be discouraged.

Confidentiality
Outside of lawful compliance obligations each Participant undertakes to honour and protect all other Participant’s right to confidentiality. This extends to gaining consent for any photography or videography you undertake.

Protocols

These ‘Principles’ have been articulated and, where a consensus has already emerged that uncertainty and ambiguity should be minimised we provide these ‘Protocols’ to form an integral part of the ‘Participant Agreement’.
