Child Safe Standards – Policy Workshop (Sept/Oct)

On 1 January 2017, Victoria introduced compulsory minimum Child Safe Standards for organisations, including sporting clubs, that provide services for children to help protect children from abuse.

Who Should Attend:  All club’s that are yet to meet the compulsory minimum standards.

This workshop will focus on using VicSport Policy Template (Child Safe Standard 2) to help Clubs meet the 7 compulsory Child Safe Standards.

The outcomes from this workshop will be:

  • a Draft Policy Document that participants can take back to their committees and clubs for approval.
  • an action plan of tasks that need to be attended to when implementing the policy. Eg Code of Conduct, Reporting flowchart.

Note if your Sport has a Policy Template please bring that along to the workshops.

Changes to the Working with Children Check requirements will be discussed.
