VICSPORT launches Child Safe Online Education program
The Victorian sporting community, in particular grassroots clubs, have a new free and interactive way to understand and comply with the 11 Victorian Child Safe Standards following the launch of Vicsport’s Child Safe Online Education Program.
Developed with support from Sport and Recreation Victoria (SRV) and Lander & Rogers, the education program is powered by etrainu’s Learning Management System.
Featuring one module per Standard, users are able to delve into the content while working through practical, sport-based strategies and scenarios to help with their understanding. Breakdowns of compliance indicators, policies and procedures are also included while the modules feature the ability to save as you go, meaning you can work through the program at your own pace.
The free and interactive program is designed to guide sport administrators, volunteers, coaches and/or officials through the Standards.

Child Safety Message for Council’s Community Spaces and EventsShare on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
In close conjunction with Council’s Child Safe Work Group, we have developed new signs to ensure our events and community spaces are safe, respectful and inclusive for our younger community members.
As users of our shared community spaces, we ask for your support in printing these signs and placing them in child friendly areas around your facility.
Manningham Council will not tolerate any abusive behaviour at any of our events or community spaces which makes another person feel unsafe and or disrespected and we hope you support us in spreading this message to our community.

Child SafetyShare on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
All sport clubs in Victoria that provide services, programs or facilities for children are required to comply with Child Safe Standards, to ensure that the safety of children is promoted, child abuse is prevented, and allegations of child abuse are properly responded to.
The Child Safe Standards are minimum compulsory standards for all organisations that interact with children and young people. The Standards aim to prevent abuse through a focus on cultural change and help to protect children from the risks of abuse.
On 1 July 2021 the Victorian Government announced new Child Safe Standards to more closely align with the National Child Safe Principles. The New Standards come into effect on 1 July 2022.
If you require assistance in understanding and meeting the Child Safe Standards, we recommend getting in touch with your state sport association.
Working with Children Checks
The Working with Children Check is a screening process for assessing or re-assessing people who work with or care for children in Victoria. If you are a volunteer that works with children you are required by law to have a valid working with children check.
