Network and the NSW Cancer Council have developed a joint policy on sun protection for implementation across NSW in OOSH services, endorsed in July 2012.

Joining SunSmart OSHC is easy and free, complete the OSHC Contact Details/Partnership Commitment form, remembering to have it signed in the appropriate places then send along with a copy of the approved Sun Protection Policy (it is important that you don’t make any changes to the approved Sun Protection Policy)
