Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport

Sport can be a brilliant way for children and young people to develop their physical and emotional wellbeing, make friends and learn new skills.

Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport is a partnership between Children 1st and sportscotland that helps ensure children and young people stay safe and have fun while taking part in sport.

We provide:

  • advice on a wide range of issues, including case specific advice and support regarding any child protection or wellbeing issue.
  • consultancy to help sports organisations develop ways to keep children and young people safe.
  • training to develop understanding about child wellbeing and protection for coaches, clubs, governing bodies and board or committee members.
  • resources including policy templates, topic specific briefings and regular updates.
