As a sports team management platform, Spond understands the importance of providing safe and reliable activities for clubs, groups, and organisations involved in sports and physical activities.

Whether you're a governing body, a county association of youth clubs, an umbrella organisation for disability groups, a sports franchise owner, or even directly delivering activities, it's crucial to prioritise safeguarding in sport for both young people and vulnerable adults.

Ensuring child safety in sports

Even if you're not in direct contact with children and young people, you still have a responsibility to safeguard their well-being. In conjunction with Sport England,

the Child Protection in Sport Unit offers resources to help you maintain a safe environment for all participants โ€“ their online self-assessment tool can guide you in identifying areas for improvement.

By using this tool, you'll be led through the Standards for Safeguarding Children in Sport. Straightforward questions will help you evaluate your organization's current practices and determine any necessary changes. Additionally, Spond has created an information pack to guide you through each step in further detail, ensuring your organization maintains the highest standards in child protection.
