How can sport safeguard children?

Last updated: 13 Apr 2021 Topics: Safeguarding standards Duty of care

This animation has been produced to help anyone involved in delivering sport or activities to children and young people.

It shows the difference between child protection and safeguarding in a sports setting and looks in more depth at how children and young people can be further protected beyond their time at training sessions.

We take a closer look at contextual safeguarding and how, by looking at where young people practice skills in their spare time, how they travel to practice or where they go afterwards, we can help to make them even safer.
