Child Safe Standards Information Sessions

 

Sport North East partnership with Alpine and Towong Shires,  invites local sporting clubs to a free information session about the Victorian Government’s Child Safe Standards and how your club can implement them.

Topics include:

  • the culture and leadership of your organisation
  • the policies you need
  • how to put together a code of conduct
  • recruit and train staff and volunteers
  • respond to and report suspected abuse
  • identify and remove risks
  • promote the participation and empowerment of the children in your club.
