The Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) has developed a range of information and guidance to assist in providing safe environments for children and young people in sport.
These resources can be accessed via www.thecpsu.org.uk/resource-library
Don’t let anyone spoil the fun!
Sport is fun – it gives you the opportunity to make new friends, try out new activities and amaze yourself with what you can do!
It’s your right as a parent or carer to be able to check how well a sports club is run, for the sake of your child’s safety and your peace of mind. We have developed a new resource for parents and carers to provide information on what organisations should have in place when delivering sport.
The CPSU have created a video called ‘My Magic Sports Kit’ involving children describing how the behaviour or parents & spectators affects their experience of sport.
Guidance for Clubs
Is your organisation doing everything it could be to keep children and young people safe in sport? The CPSU have developed an online self-assessment tool which will help you find out.
The tool will take you through the Standards for safeguarding children in sport developed by the CPSU. There are simple questions for each of the nine standards elements which will help you assess what your organisation still needs to do. They have produced an information pack to guide you through each step in a bit more detail. The pack will open as a PDF document (see download below), so you can refer to it at any time without losing your place in the tool.
