GUIDE TO SAFEGUARDING: CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE

Sport is fun! It gives you the opportunity to make new friends and try out new activities. However, for a few children the fun is spoiled by adults who do or say things during sporting activities or at other times that hurt or frighten them. We want to make sure the sports you are playing are safe!
