Children and Young People benefit greatly from taking part in sport and leisure activities, which give them the opportunity to be healthy and active, to have fun, to learn new skills and to make new friends. Bucks Sport, in partnership with the Child Protection in Sport Unit and other County Sports Partnerships in the Region, have produced a series of information leaflets to help children/young people, clubs, coaches, volunteers, officials and parents ensure that all sport operates in a safe environment.
A guide for children and Young People - When young people take part in sport they have the right to have fun and stay safe...don't let anyone spoil it!
A guide for Parents and Carers - With so many leisure activities to choose from in a local community, this guide will help you to choose activities that your children will enjoy and where they will be safe from potential harm.
A guide for Sports Clubs and Organisations - This leaflet provides sports clubs and organisations with information and guidance on how to adopt good sports practice and ensure that the safety of children and young people is paramount.
A guide for Coaches, Leaders & Officials - By the very nature if their involvement with children, young people and vulnerable adults,the sports workforce may find themselves in a position where they observe inappropriate or uncharacteristic behaviour, see evidence of harm or receive reports of harm to participants in their care. This leaflet will support all members of the sports workforce by providing information and guidance on good sports practice.
