Organisations have a duty of care to the people who they work with. Further information about an organisation’s duty of care is available in guidance produced by the CPSU, available here.

This section provides advice and guidance for organisations in relation to safeguarding children and young people in sport/physical activity, including a useful Check and Challenge toolkit and numerous other useful resources.
