How can GV help?

GV has a suite of online resources and templates  and a full-time Child Safe Manager, Phoebe Pownall to help clubs with Child Safety. 

You can check out the resources here  or contact Phoebe via Email: ppownall@gymnasticsvictoria.org.au  or Phone: 03 9005 4700

Other areas of support include:

Staff Training - Covering a range of topics including General Child Abuse information, Child Safe Codes of Conduct, Social Media, Safe Touch or any other topic on Child Safety that would be beneficial. The cost of a workshop is currently free and attendee's will receive updating points.

Human Resources - The hiring/ induction/ supervision process in clubs can often be a ‘high risk’ area that needs to be improved to ensure offenders are deterred from gaining employment in your club. Contact GV to discuss what processes and procedures you need in place to lower this risk.

Child Safe Complaints or Allegations - GV is available to support you with any child safety concerns or complaints that may be raised at your club. We can provide general advice or help with  investigation or procedure.
 
Review of Documents - If you have any policies or documents that relate to child safety, we are available to provide advice and feedback.

Child Safe Standards Support - Your committee, board members or staff can access one-on-one sessions regarding how to implement some or all of the Child Safe Standards in your club.

Community Engagement - If you need help explaining child safety to your community, board members or committee, we are available to come and hold a presentation for you.
