RDA SA Policies

RDA SA values good relationships among its participants.  Policies have been developed to help riders and volunteers understand how RDA works, and to support them if they need help with difficult situations at RDA.

Some of the policies/information below may provide a useful starting point for anyone wishing to find out more about our procedures.

The Rider and Volunteer Information leaflet may be useful.

Reporting of Incidents to SA Police Guidelines

RDA SA is required to comply with legislation regarding reporting of incidents to SA Police. 
All incidents seen to compromise a rider's well-being and/or safety mean that action should be taken. All RDA SA volunteers are required to familiarise themselves with the guidelines.
