Child Safe Standards Workshops

The Victorian State Government has introduced compulsory minimum standards that apply to organisations that provide service for children to help protect children from all forms of abuse. The Victorian Child Safe Standards have been in effect for sporting organisations that operate and provide sporting services for children within Victoria since 1 January 2017.

There are seven different requirements which make up the standards, which sports are required to comply.

The standards relate to child protection within your organisation and include requirements to have practices, procedures and policies in place. Sporting organisations should look at reviewing their compliance with the standards and consider if the culture and environment within their organisation is supportive and protective of children.

Sports Focus are conducting free information workshops for sporting clubs to assist in understanding and meeting the Victorian Child Safe Standards.
