This information will help you to write a safeguarding plan for your sports and activity organisation.
Using an effective safeguarding plan enables organisations and activity providers to meet their safeguarding responsibilities by setting out the work being done to make activities safer for everyone.
About safeguarding plans and strategies
Safeguarding plans are sometimes referred to as implementation plans or action plans. In this section we use the term 'safeguarding plan'.
The safeguarding plan is a document that sets out all of the safeguarding work taking place within the organisation or club. This should include any safeguarding priorities, ongoing projects and areas for development as well as the day-to-day work.
Many sports organisations will have an overall strategy aligned to their vision, mission and values. Some organisations also have a safeguarding strategy which outlines their strategic safeguarding goals. Your safeguarding plan should support any overall strategy.
A communication plan sets out how and when you will share the key information about safeguarding to people across your organisation or sports network.
A training plan sets out the specific safeguarding training that will take place for various roles across your organisation or sports network.
