International Safeguards for Children in Sport

These safeguards outline the things that should be put in place by any organisation providing sports activities to children and young people.

The International safeguards for children in sport should be viewed as guides, which facilitate an organisation’s journey towards safeguarding children, rather than an end in themselves.

They reflect international declarations, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, relevant legislation, government guidance, existing child protection and safeguarding standards, and good practice.
