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.

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.
