UK Coaching Safeguarding & Protecting Children

Create a Positive Sports Experience for Young People

Every child deserves to enjoy their sport. This workshop will raise your awareness of the tell tale signs of abuse, and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise in your coaching career.

Updated to include content on Anti-radicalisation and Vulnerable Children and Adults.

Some children might be at greater risk of abuse than others (eg disabled children, children in care or talented young people in sport), while some adults are vulnerable and may be at a greater risk of abuse. We have worked with the CPSU to develop some new scenarios that take into account additional vulnerabilities these groups may encounter and how we can ensure their voice is always heard in sport.

We have worked with the Police Prevent team to help develop new guidance and scenarios that will help coaches understand the warning signs that a young person may be being radicalised. We have also included information on how anyone with concerns can contact the NSPCC anti-radicalisation hotline.

Please note if you’re a young volunteer in sport under the age of 16 ‘Keeping Safe in Sport: Safeguarding for Young Volunteers (13+)' is the workshop for you. Anyone under the age of 16 will not receive a certificate for attending this workshop.
