Last updated: 31 Aug 2022 Topics: Safeguarding standards

Is your organisation doing everything it could be to keep children and young people safe in sport? These online self-assessment tools will help you find out.

Below we outline the two tools to help you decide which one you should use. Within each tool there are simple questions for each area of safeguarding, which will help you assess what your organisation still needs to do.

Essential safeguarding self-assessment tool

Are you a small, independent and community-based organisation? The essential safeguarding self-assessment tool takes you through the standard requirements all organisations should have to safeguard children in sport. The tool will take you through 9 sections where you can assess what your organisation does well and some areas where you could implement some improvements.

Extended safeguarding self-assessment tool

Are you a larger organisation already with some safeguarding structures in place? Our extended safeguarding self-assessment tool enables you to identify whether your organisation is fulfilling your safeguarding requirements.

Note that if you are affiliated to a national governing body (NGB) they may stipulate that you comply with sport-specific safeguarding arrangements. They may already be working with the CPSU to implement the more comprehensive Standards for safeguarding and protecting children in sport.
