club SafeSport recommendations

From the UK’s leading children’s charity:

  • a welfare or child protection officer who you can contact with any concerns
  • a clear procedure for complaints and concerns
  • written standards for good practice
  • effective consent and emergency processes
  • a safe recruitment process for staff and volunteers, including vetting
  • staff and volunteers are trained in safeguarding children
  • children and young people are suitably supervised (based on their age, ability, the activity and venue) by adults who are trained to care for them
  • the activity takes place in a safe environment – and there are separate changing areas for children and adults
