Safeguarding and Child Protection Workshop

Every child deserves to enjoy their sport. The Safeguarding and Child Protection workshop aims to increase awareness of safeguarding and protecting children, helping coaches to recognise signs of abuse and poor practice, and deal sensitively and effectively with issues that arise. It also prompts a review of coaching practice to ensure that sport provides a positive and enriching experience for children.
