Whether playing in a local park, with a local club, or representing their school, county, region or country, all children and young people have the right to enjoy their sport safely. Equally parents or carers need to be confident that their children are looked after and kept safe.

Safe sport events, activities and competitions (PDF) will help you to ensure that you meet the safeguarding responsibilities for your event and take steps to promote the wellbeing of all participants and other young people involved, eg as volunteers or officials. It is appropriate for events held anywhere in the UK.

This 112-page resource supersedes and expands on the earlier CPSU publications, 'Safe sport away' (produced in conjunction with the Amateur Swimming Association) and 'Safe sports events'.
