We want children, young people and adults at risk to feel protected when they take part in sport and physical activity. We’re here to help you provide a safe and supportive environment that makes activities relaxed and fun for all involved.

A safe and supportive environment can boost confidence, promote teamwork and create opportunities to learn valuable life skills. Every adult, club and agency involved in sport can make a big difference to participants’ enjoyment of an activity by making sure they put safe practices at the heart of everything they do.

The governance around Safeguarding can be complex. In January 2018 we launched the Energise Me Safeguarding Check and Challenge Toolkit to pull together key information, contacts and guidance notes to make it easier for clubs and activity providers to tackle safeguarding head on.

We’ve also compiled a list of useful links that take you to groups, charities and authorities that cover all areas of safeguarding.
