Dealing with children and young people in the sports sector requires safeguarding issues to be considered on a daily basis.
Understanding the issues which most frequently need to be managed in your organisation as well as spotting any trends enables you to plan and implement effective safeguarding policies and allows you to pro-actively focus compliance regimes and training.
The list above highlights just some of the issues which can hold back effective safeguarding management. Good safeguarding provides a framework to enable children to participate at all levels in sport, and at the same time protects coaches, staff, parents, and volunteers.
We have a team of lawyers from across different disciplines at Gateley that can provide strategic support in relation to all aspects of safeguarding, from the preparation of policies and procedures to advice on the employment law implications of any investigation.
