Safeguarding for companies and non-traditional sports

Children and young people

Regardless of whether you are or aren’t coming into direct contact with children and young people, you have a responsibility for safeguarding. The Child Protection in Sport Unit provide resources to help ensure that you’re doing everything to keep children and young people safe – their online self-assessment tool will help you find out if there are any areas in which you could improve. 

The tool will take you through the Standards for Safeguarding Children in Sport. There are simple questions which will help you assess what your organisation still needs to do. We’ve also produced an information pack to guide you through each step in a bit more detail.

The Ann Craft Trust has a range of documents to support all organisations to safeguard adults.

Sample policies and procedures can be found online, as well as specific information for sole traders, small businesses and constituted groups.

They also have an online framework that can support all organisations to implement best practice in safeguarding adults.

No one involved in sport and physical activity, whether they’re a volunteer, participant, spectator or an elite athlete, should ever have to worry about abuse or harassment.
