THE SAFE CLUBS 4 KIDS (SC4K) INITIATIVE ENCOURAGES AND SUPPORTS THE SPORT AND ACTIVE RECREATION INDUSTRY TO CREATE AND MAINTAIN SAFE ENVIRONMENTS FOR CHILDREN AND YOUND PEOPLE.
Children should be able to grow and develop in a safe environment without the risk of harm. Most people who volunteer or work with children are safe and do so to make a positive contribution and help children develop to their full potential.
History shows that child abuse occurs across all sectors of the community, including the area of sport and recreation. However, by taking a few simple steps such as the Safe Clubs for Kids 4 considerations, you can adopt a proactive approach to creating a safe environment for children and young people.
