Children, young people and some adults face risks in all aspects of their life and sport is no different. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. So, whatever your role in your club, as a parent, coach, volunteer or young person, you should be familiar with your club or governing body's safeguarding policies and procedures. 

But don’t worry, we’re here to help and you’ll find everything you need to know here.

What is Safeguarding?
