Victorian Child Safe Standards

From 1 January, 2017, the Victorian Child Safety 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 sport will be required to comply. The standards relate to child protection within your organisation and include requirements to have practices, procedures and policies in place.

In the lead up to implementation, sporting organisations 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.

For more information, contact Sport North East at mailto:sportnortheast@thecentre.vic.edu.au and visit https://vicsport.com.au/child-safe-standards for information and resources.
