Operation Sportsafe Launch Event
Did you know that all sports clubs have a statutory responsibility to ensure children are protected from harm?
Operation Sportsafe is a campaign to educate the sports community on the warning signs of child exploitation and abuse, empowering you to feel confident in speaking up and reporting concerns.
Due to an increased number of disclosures in recent years, safeguarding children in sport is a national focus and for the first time, sports clubs and organisations have been included in the statutory guidance "Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018)". We now want to ensure sports clubs are informed and equipped on how to safeguard children in Surrey.
You will hear from:
- Surrey Police
- The National Working Group for CSE's Safeguarding in Sport lead
- Active Surrey
You will receive information, free posters and aide memoirs to use.
Come along to the official launch to learn more!
