From 1 January 2017, all organisations, including sporting organisations that work with children, are required by the Victoria Government to have in place Child Protection Policies.  These policies must cover specific information set out by the Government in Standards.  They are as follows:

The child safe standards

To create and maintain a child safe organisation, an entity to which the standards apply must have:

  • Standard 1: Strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements
  • Standard 2: A child safe policy or statement of commitment to child safety
  • Standard 3: A code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children
  • Standard 4: Screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel
  • Standard 5: Processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse
  • Standard 6: Strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse
  • Standard 7: Strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children.
