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.
The Sporting Club Grants Program Round 2, offered by Sport and Recreation Victoria, provides grants to assist in the purchase of sports uniforms and equipment and to improve the capacity and accessibility of Victorian clubs and other community sport and recreation organisations and increase the skills of their coaches, officials and managers. There are 3 categories:
Category 1: $1,000 – Uniform or equipment – uniforms or other equipment essential for participation.
Category 2: $2,000 – Skill development – improve the skills of club members by providing training for coaches, officials, administration staff and management committees.
Category 3: $5,000 – Club Operational Capacity – improve the operational effectiveness and efficiency of clubs through strategic planning or to increase community participation through accessible sport and active recreation opportunities.
