Yorkshire Sport Foundation has a responsibility to protect vulnerable children and young people and we are committed to improving safeguarding processes across sport.
It also has responsibility for advocating and influencing partner organisations to provide safe systems for safeguarding children and young people. Yorkshire Sport Foundation will offer guidance and training in best practice regarding safeguarding of young people from potential abuse and reducing the risk of allegations against and adults in positions of authority.
This safeguarding policy is informed by the HM Government “Working together to safeguard children” guide to inter-agency working.
It details procedures for administrators, coaches, instructors, officials, teachers, parents and young people. Crucially, it recognises that all individuals have a duty of care to provide a safe environment and protect children and young people from abuse.
