Child Safety in Football
Guidance for football clubs in Victoria, relating to the 2017 Child Safe Standards. - Recent government inquiries into child safety in Australia have prompted changes to the law to provide children with greater protections. - As of 1 January 2017, in Victoria the Child Wellbeing and Safety Amendment Act 2015 requires sports clubs to meet “Child Safe Standards” (The Standards). The Standards are aimed at helping clubs to protect children from abuse. - A number of resources have been developed with independent advice to assist affiliated clubs to understand and meet their obligations.
