After the Royal Commission into institutional responses to child sexual abuse and the many cases of abuse in sporting clubs, it has highlighted a great need for sporting clubs to be diligent in this area. We can nolonger just assume our clubs are safe because we know the coaches and other volunteers. No longer is a WWC Check enough. We must do everything we can to keep the children safe in our care so they can thrive in sport and in life.
Why choose ChildSafe to partner with?
Because we understand grassroots clubs and associations. We understand because our senior staff is involved in them in various capacities. We see the struggle it is sometimes for clubs to “just get volunteers” let alone the right ones. We see the struggle it is to be financially sustainable. We get it and that is why we have developed ChildSafe Sport. A subscription-based package that is there to support you.

“Signing up to ChildSafe Australia was an easy decision for our Committee at South Yarra Soccer Club. The ChildSafe sports package ensures our club is meeting all the standards and requirements; while providing us with useful resources and tools. The 90 minute face to face culture and abuse training was extremely beneficial for our Coaches and Team Managers and allowed them to understand the requirements and processes in place. Children’s safety should be a priority for all sporting clubs; by signing up to ChildSafe Australia our club is holding itself accountable and doing everything we can to provide a safe and trusted environment for every child at our club. South Yarra SC is proud to be one of the first soccer clubs to sign up to the ChildSafe Sports package and we look forward to continuing our partnership with ChildSafe Australia in the future.”

Once you subscribe and we are on the journey together we build a partnership and we are on the journey with you the whole way. As was shared our staff is involved in grassroots sporting clubs as volunteers so we know what it is to run a sporting club and the massive amount of requirements that clubs have to adhere to in this area and we recognize it can be frustrating and we are here to try and take some of that frustration away by guiding you and partnering with you so you don’t feel alone.
“Just wanted to acknowledge the team at Child Safe Australia. The guidance and support they’ve provided Mt Eliza Soccer Club during the implementation of a new child safety framework has been outstanding. The education, tools and process recommendations they provide as part of their service, empower local community sporting clubs such as ours to really begin to move the dial and drive a cultural change in the area of Child Safety. I cannot recommended them enough!”
