Child Safety/Protection Resources Hub

Child Safety Mission Statement

Spotswood Football Netball Club is committed to promoting and protecting the safety and well-being of children and young people in our care.

We seek to promote and protect the rights of all children in out care and prevent abuse from occurring by fostering a child safe culture. The welfare of the children in our care will always be our first priority and the club has a zero tolerance to child abuse. Our Club will present environments and experiences that always consider and put measures in place to ensure the safety of children.

Policies & Procedures

In 2017, the Child Safe Standards were brought into effect for organisations such as the WFNL and its clubs. The Child Safety Resource Hub is a central location for training, templates and other resources to support Child Safety Officers at our club, as well as for the benefit of any other club officials, parents or players who may want to better understand the Standards.

A folder of Resources can be accessed here. Please contact Manager – Junior Football, Steph Reimers ( for the password to this folder.

Other Resources

There are many resources available to assist in gaining an understanding of Child Safety and the obligations we have. These are just a few that will help us all when interacting with children.

Child Safety Training

It is the responsibility of every member of our club to ensure the safety of children. These resources will help everyone understand the obligation that we all have in this area.

The Victorian State Government has introduced compulsory minimum standards that apply to organisations that provide services for children to help protect children from all forms of abuse. The Victorian Child Safety Standards now apply to sporting organisations that operate and provide sporting services for children within Victoria.

There are seven (7) different requirements that make up the standards, which sporting organisations are required to comply with. Each Standard should be understood and applied in the context of the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, the cultural safety of children from a culturally and/or linguistically diverse background and the safety of children with a disability. Spotswood Football Netball Club is committed to implementing these 7 standards.
