During 2016, Netball Victoria undertook a compliance audit of its published materials on our website against the Standards. As a result of this audit, two documents have been developed to help support NV and all its affiliates to comply with the new Standards. The Child Safety in Netball Code of Conduct and the Child Safety in Netball Policy have now been published on the NV website. Both of these documents come into effect 1 January 2017.
Netball Victoria encourages all of its affiliates to review their culture, processes and practices against the Child Safety in Netball Code of Conduct and the Standards and make any changes that are required moving forward. Affiliates should adopt and communicate the Child Safety in Netball Code of Conduct and Child Safety in Netball Policy to all members. VICSPORT have also developed some practical information and resources to assist in this review process. Go to: https://vicsport.com.au/child-safe-standards.
The Child Safety in Netball Policy also contains new requirements regarding the Working with Children Check for all Netball Victoria affiliates from 1 January 2017. For further information regarding the new Working with Children Check requirements go to:
