CHILD SAFETY STANDARDS - FROM 1ST JULY 2022

Victoria’s Child Safe Standards are a set of mandatory requirements to protect children and young people from harm and abuse.

The Child Safe Standards commenced in Victoria in January 2016. Changes have recently been made to make our Standards even stronger. On the 1st of July 2022, the Victorian Government’s new 11 Child Safe Standards came into effect and it is the responsibility of everyone in the Netball community to ensure they are implemented and complied with.

Child safety in sport means protecting children from abuse, providing safe, quality experiences and empowering children’s voices. Every person in the netball community has a responsibility to understand their role in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people in our care. Caulfield & District Netball Association and Netball Victoria are committed to promoting and protecting the rights of children and preventing abuse from occurring by fostering a culture where children feel safe and empowered.

We also seek to ensure the cultural safety of First Nations children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds and children with a disability.
