Be Safe in Sport
We want children, young people and adults at risk to feel protected when they take part in sport and physical activity. A safe and supportive environment can boost confidence, build enjoyment, promote teamwork and create opportunities to learn valuable life skills.
As a parent or a carer, you’ll want to find a club or organisation in your area that puts safe practices at heart of everything that they do. It can be hard to know where to start. We can signpost you to lots of information including Clubmark clubs that have high standards of welfare and a strong duty of care.
We have resources relating to safety in sport, volunteering and much more. In January 2018 we launched the Energise Me Check and Challenge Toolkit. The Toolkit pulls together key information, contacts and guidance notes to make it easier for clubs and facility providers to make sessions safe and enjoyable for all involved.
We’ve also compiled a list of useful links that take you to relevant groups and charities that cover all areas of safeguarding – from the Ann Craft Trust that provides support for all sectors to protect disabled children and adults to the tireless work done by the Child Protection in Sport Unit.
We offer training for every adult and group involved in sport with a range of regular courses and workshops across the region.
