Being a child safe organisation
NSEFC is a community sporting club that provides children an opportunity and access to play football (soccer). With that comes the responsibility of looking after our children by implementing Child Safe Standards to protect them from abuse.
Child Safe Standards aim to:
- promote the safety of children
- prevent child abuse
- ensure organisations have effective processes in place to respond to and report all allegations of child abuse.
Child Safe Standards work by:
- driving changes in organisational culture – embedding child safety in everyday thinking and practice
- providing a minimum standard of child safety across all organisations
- highlighting that we all have a role to keep children safe from abuse.
There are seven child safe standards:
- Standard 1: Governance and leadership
- Standard 2: Clear commitment to child safety
- Standard 3: Code of conduct
- Standard 4: Human resource practices
- Standard 5: Responding and reporting
- Standard 6: Risk management and mitigation
- Standard 7: Empowering children.
