Welcome to CCV

Community Clubs Victoria is an industry association representing the needs of Victorian community clubs of all shapes and sizes. We understand clubs ‘needs’ and provide a range of support and advisory services to the club network across Victoria.

Our members vary from small volunteer-based sporting clubs, through to very large clubs with multi-million dollar turnovers. All of our members have one thing in common – like us, they are not-for-profit entities designed to provide facilities, support and entertainment for their communities.

CCV assists its members with a variety of support services including:

  • Industrial relations support hotline
  • Dispute resolution
  • Governance issues
  • Liquor licensing
  • Government relations
  • Trade referrals and advice
  • Networking and learning opportunities
  • Human resource support
  • Food safety compliance
  • Regular Industry updates, newsletters and journals
  • Training information
  • Responsible Gambling compliance
  • AML/CTF for clubs with gaming
  • Senior Management Recruitment
  • Business Planning

Community Clubs Victoria

Community Clubs Victoria is an Industry Association that assists and advocates for not-for-profit licensed clubs.

On the advice of the Chief Health Officer, the seven-day lockdown in the City of Ballarat will lift at 11:59pm tonight, 22 September.
With these changes, Ballarat will move to the COVIDSafe settings it was under before the lockdown, with no reasons required to leave the home and no limit on travel throughout regional Victoria.
However, masks must still be worn indoors and out. You can’t travel to metropolitan Melbourne (or another regional Local Government Area currently in lockdown, such as Geelong or the Surf Coast) except for very limited reasons, including authorised work and permitted education, care and compassionate reasons, necessary goods and services and to visit your intimate partner.
Similarly, people from metropolitan Melbourne (or another area in lockdown) can’t go to Ballarat for anything other than the permitted reasons – and businesses are required to check IDs for addresses.
The authorised worker list no longer applies for attending work in Ballarat – but if you can work or study from home, you should continue to do so. Offices can permit staff to attend on site for work, with capacity limits. Childcare and kinder are open, as is outdoor community sports for training. Gyms are open with strict limits.

A Statement from the Chairman and President of Community Clubs Victoria, Greg Roberts  Andrews Roadmap Fails Community Clubs and Victorians  Community Clubs Victoria (CCV) is frustrated and disappointed in the Victorian Government’s Roadmap, released on Sunday, for being so restrictive it makes it unviable for most Clubs to reopen. 
Those Clubs that do reopen will do so only because they feel the need to reengage with some staff, rather than lose them to other industries, and will continue to lose money. 
Restrictive venue capacity limits of 10 inside and 20 outside is the main issue. 
Previously the Victorian Government has allowed the industry to reopen from previous lockdowns with 50 patrons or 100 patrons inside. Where did 10 come from? It is completely unworkable.
There are many venues that do not have outside areas to cater for patrons, so they are restricted to just 10 people inside their business. 
Clubs have been at the forefront of compliance and once the State reaches the 70 per cent double-vax threshold, venues should be able to open to fully vaccinated patrons subject to the one person per 4sqm inside and one person per 2sqm outside. 
Limiting metro venues to 50 patrons outdoors and regional venues to 30 patrons inside is far too restrictive and will send these clubs over the financial cliff.
Currently, on the NSW Victorian border NSW clubs and venues can open with 1 person per 4sqm inside and one person per 2sqm outside but the Victorian clubs and venues are limited to 10 people inside for another 5 weeks. 
CCV understands the need for a cautious approach to reopening but there is a difference between cautious and too restrictive. The current excessive restrictions will see clubs and venues on the brink of financial ruin. A recent survey of over 1000 clubs around Victoria has shown that more than 40% are on the brink of collapse. Just 2 in 10 Clubs that are eligible will reopen under the current roadmap.
It is critical that the Victorian Government continues to provide ongoing financial support to Clubs under the Licensed Hospitality Venue Fund.  It must be extended to include October and November or we will see venues close because of the financial hardship. 
Clubs are losing staff who are leaving hospitality to work in other industries that are not continually locked down. This support is critical to allow Clubs to continue to support and keep their staff.
Clubs employ over 30,000 Victorians and jobs will continue to be lost, and livelihoods negatively affected, if the Victorian Government continues with the excessively restrictive approach to reopening. We must find a better balance between the health concerns and business needs.
Clubs want to play their part in getting Victoria back on track. 
Clubs have a history of strong compliance with the relevant legislation and are willing to work with the Government to trial vaccination systems for patrons and staff, but we must be able to have more than 10 people inside a venue

Timeline PhotosDisposable coffee cups and lids can't go in your recycling bin at home. The cups are made from a mix of materials that are difficult to separate, and the lids are too light and get mistaken for paper by the machines at recycling facilities.

Try a reusable coffee cup instead and help reduce single-use plastics 🍶

There are now countless types and styles of reusable cups to suit your tastes. These include varieties of plastic, glass, and ceramic in just about any colour combination 🌈
