Child Safe Sport Forum

Gain up-to-date information and practical tips to help your sport meet the Child Safe Standards.

With significant changes occurring in the Child Safe space following the release of the Royal Commission findings and review of the Victorian Child Safe Standards, there is increased uncertainly about what sports should be doing to create a child safe environment.

Supported by the Victorian State Government, join us as we provide an update on legislative requirements from the Commission for Children and Young People and insights from child safety experts into developing a child safe action plan as well as tips for engaging and empowering children.

At this forum you will:

  • Hear expert advice on your regulatory and compliance requirements
  • Learn strategies to create a culture of child safety in sport organisations
  • Gain insights and ideas to engage and empower children
  • Receive updates on support and resources available
  • Learn about successful child safety strategies applied in sport and related community industries

  • Emily Sanders (Director of Regulation, Commission for Children and Young People)
  • Laura Johnston (Consultant - People, Integrity & Culture Consulting)
