New child safe posters from Vicsport

New posters promoting child safety in sport have arrived!

As a sporting community, it is our duty of care to ensure children are safe playing sport. That’s why Vicsport has developed brand new posters for your club/organisation to pin up on the walls to show that you support child safety in sport.

Through the Vicsport website, there are three designs to choose from and available for direct download by following the links underneath each image. If you require a hard copy, contact the Vicsport office on (03) 9698 8100 to arrange postage. Click here to view and download the posters.

You can red more about the Child Safe Standards on the Vicsport website, as well as information and resources on child safety in sport for SSAs and RSAs, clubs, leagues and associations.

If you are looking for assistance with creating and implementing a Child Safe Standards policy at your club or organisation, contact the Sport North East office on (03) 5721 0200 or sportnortheast@thecentre.vic.edu.au

Pick My Project Grants Initiative

Pick My Project is a Victorian first community grants initiative, with $30 million available to fund local projects. There are some great opportunities for sporting clubs to upgrade facilities, organise special events, get some new equipment and many more possibilities. This is an ideal time to think outside the box so get creative with those ideas and submit an application!

Start thinking about a great idea for a project that could make your sporting community an even better place. Chat to your friends, neighbours, and members of your sports club about your project idea and get their thoughts before you write your application.

The application closing date is 8 July 2018.
