Child Safety Standards

Victoria has introduced compulsory minimum standards for organisations that provide services for children to help protect children from abuse.

The Child Safe Standards form part of the Victorian Government’s response to the Betrayal of Trust Inquiry (the 2013 Parliamentary Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Non-Government Organisations).  The Commission for Children and Young People will be the oversight body for the Child Safe Standards from 1 January 2017.

Education, awareness raising and helping organisations to create and maintain child safe environments will be the initial focus of the Child Safe Standards.  More information about the organisations in scope can be found on the In scope organisations for Child Safe Standards page.

The Child Safe Standards do not alter any existing requirements to hold a Working with Children Check.

Tournament cash policy

 

What's changed?

All members please note that the VBSA is acting in best prudential practices of handling your money.  

At our most recent Board meeting 29th August 2019 it was ratified and voted unanimously that no cash payments should be received when entering events involving the VBSA. 

 

When does this take effect?

To transition this smoothly this will be implemented immediately with unconditional application of this rule in place by 31st December 2019. 

 

What do I need to do?

The Board asks that should you wish to enter a VBSA associated tournament or event that you make arrangements to purchase your entry via either 

  • the PayPal facility on the website or 
  • direct credit the appropriate fee through your bank (Remember to add your name as a reference to allow us to easily identify your entry payment)

For people without access to the internet please enlist the help of a friend or relative to pay & process your entry for you.

All entry forms will indicate this change and already include VBSA banking details.

 

Only paid entries can be processed to the draw. Unpaid entries will not be added to the draw after the closing date under any circumstances after 31st December 2019

This message will be emailed and sent via SMS to all members for their notification and action.  

If you have any questions about this change don’t hesitate to contact any member of the VBSA board who will be happy to help http://www.vbsa.org.au/VBSA/vbsa_contact.php
