Member Protection Policy - New Legislation
Date of Event : Mon Mar 20, 2017 1:19AM

From 1 January 2017, new legislation in Victoria came into effect for all sporting organisations that engage with children. A key aspect of the new legislation is to demonstrate a commitment to safeguarding children.



WHAT IS THE MEMBER PROTECTION POLICY?
The Member Protection Policy (MPP) is in place to protect the health, well-being and safety of all people who participate in cricket within Victoria.

WHO DOES THE MPP APPLY TO?
The Member Protection Policy (MPP) applies to:

  • Clubs, associations, regions and peak bodies affiliated with Cricket Victoria
  • Committees and Boards
  • Employees
  • Coaches, umpires, team managers, and support personnel (paid or unpaid)
  • Players in any sanctioned competition, event, carnival or tournament
  • Any person or organisation who or which is a member of a CV Organisation (this can be a club, association, region, affiliate or Cricket Victoria itself)

The update to the MPP ensures that from a policy perspective, the Child Safe Standards are embedded to guide and support the delivery of cricket across Cricket Victoria and its members.

The Vermont South Cricket Club are committed to the protection and safety of children. The Vermont South Cricket Club aim to protect the welfare of children by creating, implementing and complying with all measures set out in the MPP.
