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

Fair Play Code

We recently attended the ‘Funding Opportunities and The Fair Play Code’ forum facilitated by Sport and Recreation Victoria (SRV) in Yackandandah. The forum was well attended by members from the local sporting community. Thank you to all who came along, we hope the forum was helpful to you with your future projects in mind.

SRV encourages clubs to apply for Category 3 funding under the ‘Sporting Club Grants’ program. Category 3 offers sports clubs up to $5,000 to improve club operational capacity. Future grant recipients must adhere to the Fair Play Code, which includes creating and implementing a policy focused on fairness and equity at their club. Sport North East can assist clubs with creating and implementing policies of this nature, in addition to other policies such as a Child Safe Standards policy, and Code of Conduct.

If your club is seeking support in this area, contact us today on (03) 5721 0200 or at sportnortheast@thecentre.vic.edu.au
