Safe sport events, activities and competitions

Last updated: 12 May 2017 Topics: Trips, events and travel

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. 

Our 112-page resource, 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, including volunteers and officials.

It's appropriate for events held anywhere in the UK.
