The ‘Safer in Sport’ section of the website provides useful information, advice and resources in relation to safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk in sport and physical activity.

We work very closely with the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) and Ann Craft Trust to continuously review and improve our safeguarding policies and practices, and to support and encourage our partners to improve theirs too.
