NSPCC Child Protection in Sport

New safeguarding in sport animation A new animation launched by the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) is helping more people to understand what child protection and safeguarding mean in a sports setting.

NSPCC Child Protection in Sport

  The video, which is two and a half minutes long, looks more in depth at how  children and young people can be further protected beyond their time at training  sessions. It takes a closer look at contextual safeguarding and how, by thinking about where young people practice skills in their spare time, how they travel to  practice or where they go afterwards, we can help to make them even safer.  

Michelle North, Head of CPSU, said: “Safeguarding can feel like a complex topic. Breaking it down and  presenting it in a different format can really help to tell the story and  deliver the messaging in its simplest terms.  “I hope that this animation sparks that understanding and helps people to  think about what they can do to better safeguard the young people they  work with.” We would like these messages to reach everyone involved in delivering sport  and activity to children and young people.
