Child protection achievement for CSPs
All 49 county sports partnerships have now successfully achieved the advanced level of the Standards for Safeguarding Children in Sport.
The standards provide a framework or audit tool for all those involved in sport to help them create a safe sporting environment for children and young people and protect them from harm.
The standards also seek to provide a benchmark to help those involved in sport make informed decisions, promote good practice and challenge practice that is harmful to children.
