Victorian organisations that provide services or facilities for children are required by law to implement Child Safe Standards to protect children from harm. This includes Cricket Victoria and all clubs and associations.
WHAT ARE CHILD SAFE STANDARDS?
Strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements
A child safe policy or statement of commitment to child safety
A code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children
Screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel
Processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse
Strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse
Strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children
Although all children are vulnerable, some children face additional vulnerabilities.
The standards provide three overarching principles for organisations to cover:
the cultural safety of Aboriginal Children
the cultural safety of children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds
the safety of children with a disability

Please note that the bookings for our Cricket Facilities are made in real time and therefore don’t appear in this cart.
