Interchange Outer East is currently reviewing its Water Activities Policy and would like to hear your views on the proposed amendment in regard to swimming activities for people with epilepsy.

The proposed clause for inclusion is:
It is a requirement for all individuals with a diagnosis of epilepsy to wear a life jacket for all water based activities, including swimming, unless the individual has a specific plan signed by a parent / guardian exempting them from this requirement.

We acknowledge that the above clause would benefit from further refinement but,as a first step in the process, would like to establish if the concept is one that people involved in IOE would embrace. In order to ensure everyone has an opportunity to contribute their thoughts on this policy inclusion, IOE will be holding 3 forums to which everyone is welcome.

Forum dates are : Monday 14th July 10 am -12 pm; Tuesday 15th July 7:30 pm – 9:30pm; Wednesday 16th July 4 pm -6pm

We would like to hear the opinions of  individuals, families, volunteers and staff both for and against the amendment,  how this would impact on their involvement with IOE and any other considerations around the implementation of the policy.We acknowledge that the above clause would benefit from further refinement but,as a first step in the process, would like to establish if the concept is one that people involved in IOE would embrace.

If you are unable to make the forum but would like to have input into the discussion please feel free to contact Bel Minett via email at bel.minett@ioe.org.au.

Please RSVP your forum attendance by contacting Interchange reception ph. (03) 9758 5522.
