Safeguarding in Sport

Sport-specific Safeguarding Resources


Sport is a terrific way for young people to develop their physical skills, team work and confidence. Thousands of people give up their time to coach and encourage youngsters, but occasionally incidents of grooming and abuse occur. Ensuring that children in sport are as safe as possible is much more rigorous than ever before.

Some schools hire out their facilities to community groups and this is an opportunity to make sure that people leading those teams have appropriate safeguarding procedures in place.  I've collated below links to the safeguarding pages of the governing bodies of many sports to help build awareness and learn from each other.
