Network groups

Scottish governing body network group

This forum was set up to support people within sports governing bodies who have the lead responsibility in child protection. The objectives of the group are to provide an opportunity to:

  • network with other individuals and share experiences and good practice in relation to child protection
  • discuss/provide training on specific areas identified by participants
  • consult in the development of child protection in sport.

Local authority network group

This group is aimed at those involved in sport and leisure activities who take forward child protection within their local authority or leisure trust. The forum has the same objectives as that of the Scottish governing body group.

Joint meetings of these two groups are now held twice yearly. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact us on 0141 419 1156 or email: safeguardinginsport@children1st.org.uk
