Assess my organisation

Safeguarding self-assessment

All sports organisations should have processes in place to ensure that they provide a safe and welcoming environment for children and young people.

Safeguarding self-assessment tool

Use our safeguarding self-assessment tool to ensure you are doing everything you can to keep children safe.

The tool will take you through the Standards for safeguarding children in sport developed by the Child Protection in Sport Unit. There are simple questions for each of the 9 standards elements, which will help you assess what your organisation still needs to do.

If you are affiliated to a funded National Governing Body (NGB) of sport, your Sports Council may require you to work with the CPSU to achieve the Safeguarding Standards.

For further information, continue to the next tab, the 'Standards assessment process'.

Standards assessment process

Safeguarding standards and assessment process in summary

Standards provide a framework for all those involved in sport to help them create a safe sporting environment for children and young people and protect them from harm.

The Standards also seek to provide a benchmark to help those involved in sport make informed decisions, and to promote good practice and challenge practice that is harmful to children.

The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit is committed to advising and supporting sports organisations in this important work. We hope these standards will provide organisations with the confidence to safeguard children.

The structure of the standards assessment process may differ between UK nations but the principles are consistent.

If your organisation is currently working towards the Standards with the support of the CPSU, please contact us for more information.
