Safeguarding in Sport Forum

The NWG Network Safeguarding in Sport team are hosting a webinar looking at how sexual abuse occurs in sport.

The spotlight of abuse in sport, including the recent BBC documentary Football's Dirty Secret and the publication of the Sheldon enquiry into abuse in football, has highlighted the need for improved understanding of safeguarding in sport and better recognition of how children can become victims of predatory behaviour by those who should be protecting them.

What's covered 

The presentation will focus on perpetrator behaviour, exploring their motivations to abuse children and the tactics they use to commit these crimes against children

It will also explore the role of ‘bystanders’ and ‘enablers’ and discuss what more can be done to improve the culture within these settings to ensure children are better safeguarded from abuse.

NWG's safeguarding partner Lawrence Jordan will deliver a presentation on this subject and we will have a Q&A session at the end for those attending, to discuss any issues raised during the session.

This presentation is aimed at safeguarding leads/professionals and will discuss in detail child sexual abuse and other topics of a sexual nature. It may not be suitable for delegates who would find this subject upsetting or distressing.
