More about NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit
We help sports organisations to make sport a safe and enjoyable experience for all children and young people.
We created ‘Standards’ in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. These describe the ‘safeguards’ a sport needs to put in place. We help sports do this by providing training, information and advice. We have a website where anyone can find information.
We provide training for child welfare/safeguarding officers from national to club level.
We meet national sports bodies to ensure their safeguarding work is on track.
It is important that sports know how to involve young people. We work with young people to find out what they like and don’t like in sport and share this with sports. Sport Wales’ young ambassadors attend our meetings with sports to ensure they are involving and listening to young people.
