CHILD SAFE STANDARDS – From 1 January 2017, the Child Safe Standards will apply to sporting organisations that operate and provide sporting services to children within Victoria (including National Sporting Organisations). The Standards apply to organisations as a whole, not only the areas that work with children It takes many components to build an organisation with a culture of child safety. The Standards should act as a starting point from which your organisation can take action.

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