Child Safe Policies Update

Updates to the Child Safe Standards in Victoria have been in effect since 1st of July 2022. At Outdoors Victoria, we have developed the full suite of policies, with support from an HR consulting firm and “Child Wise”, an organisation who specialises in this space.  OV staff and volunteers have begun the training process, ensuring the policies remain front and centre in our ongoing work.

This is a reminder that any organisation currently receiving funding from the Victorian Government is required to maintain policies relating to Child Safety. If your organisation requires support to meet these requirements, please refer to the following sites for resources: 

Commission for Children and Young People – Information and resources
Vicsport – Information and Resources
