Child Safety Standards - new rules will soon apply to Victorian sports
From 1 January 2017, the Victorian Child Safety Standards will apply to sporting organisations that operate and provide sporting services to children within Victoria (including National Sporting Organisations). There are seven different requirements which make up the standards, and with which sports 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.
If your organisation would like assistance with this process, the Lander & Rogers team can audit your compliance and/or provide recommendations and documentation to ensure that you are compliant with the standards.
