Being a Child Safe Club

We are supporting Harbour Sport's Community with an exclusive 

Being a Child Safe Club Workshop.

Clubs can have the best safeguarding resources possible, but there is no guarantee these will be applied or applied qualitatively without a safeguarding culture. As reflected in the University of Auckland's research* Perceptions of Child Safeguarding Policy in New Zealand Sport, a third of coaches believe their child safeguarding policy has not helped them, and the majority have not changed their coaching practice.

Rather than define a safeguarding culture, safeguarding resources need to underpin a safeguarding culture. Join us for this 2-hour early evening workshop to learn more.

In accordance with child safety best practice, this Being a Child Safe Club Workshop moves the spotlight from safeguarding resources to creating a safeguarding culture. This engaging and informative workshop can help attendees:

  • Explore the fundamentals of being a child safe organisation and creating a safeguarding culture.

  • Recognise their organisational child safety strengths and needs.

  • Identify practical steps to help create a safeguarding culture and demonstrate child safe best practice.


The workshop is best suited for staff in a position of influence, for example:

  • Governance or Leadership

  • Managerial and/or Supervisory Staff

  • Staff in specialist roles, such as:

    • Human Resources

    • Safeguarding and Child Protection Positions

    • Learning and Development

    • Organisational Development/Fundraising Positions

All attendees receive a certificate of attendance.
