PROJECT UPDATE: This consultation closed on Wednesday 19 June 2024.




We've drafted a Fair Access Policy to provide a consistent framework to support women, girls, and others in community sports.


This policy will ensure that everyone can fully participate in and enjoy the benefits of community sport, with fair opportunity and equitable access to their local facilities.


Project background

The new policy is in response to the Fair Access Policy Roadmap, released by the Office for Women in Sport in partnership with Sport and Recreation Victoria and VicHealth. It aims to develop a state-wide foundation to improve access to and use of community sports infrastructure for women, girls and others. From July 1, 2024, all Victorian councils will need to have a Fair Access Policy in place to be considered eligible to receive infrastructure funding.




Draft Fair Access Policy

We have developed our Draft Fair Access Policy using the following principles outlined in the Fair Access Roadmap:

  • Community sports infrastructure and environments are genuinely welcoming, safe, and inclusive.
  • Women and girls can fully participate in all aspects of community sport and active recreation, including as a player, coach, administrator, official, volunteer and spectator.
  • Women and girls will have equitable access to and use community infrastructure.
  • Women and girls should be equitably represented in leadership and governance roles.
  • Encourage and support all user groups who access and use community sport infrastructure to understand, adopt and implement gender equitable access and use principles.
  • Prioritise access, use and support to all user groups who demonstrate an ongoing commitment to gender equitable access and use of allocated community sport infrastructure.


Our Draft Fair Access Policy also includes a draft action plan outlining the steps and strategies we will take (in partnership with our local clubs) to support the inclusion of women, girls and others in accessing and using community sports infrastructure.
