Support and Resources
From 1 January 2017, the Victorian Child Safe Standards will apply to sporting organisations that operate and provide sporting services to children within Victoria. There are seven different requirements which make up the standards, and with which sports will be required to comply.
The standards relate to child protection within your club and include requirements to have practices, procedures and policies in place. In the lead up to implementation, clubs should now be starting to look at reviewing their compliance with the standards and considering if the culture and environment within their organisation is supportive and protective of children.
Below are a range of supporting documents and templates developed by VicSport and Sport and Recreation Victoria to help you become compliant and ensure your club has a Child Safe environment.
