Child Safety

Children have the right to feel safe and be safe from sexual, physical and emotional abuse.

Victorian organisations that provide services to children are required under the Child Safety and Wellbeing Act to ensure that they implement compulsory child safe standards to protect children from harm.

Organisations included are those that exercise care, supervision or authority over children, whether as part of its primary function or otherwise.

Organisations that interact with children vary in terms of their size, structure, children they provide services for, activities they deliver and their level of responsibility for children. As such, there can be no one size fits all approach.

There are seven Child Safe Standards. They are designed to be flexible and principle based enabling organisations to tailor their approach to reflect their own particular needs and risks.

More information on Child Safe Standards can be found here.

Banyule Junior Football Club Child Safe policies were ratified by the committee on 9 July 2019 and are available here.
