Safeguarding

The welfare of children and young people is vital to the Cornwall Sports Partnership. For that reason we have tried to make these pages as user-friendly as possible by providing the information in a downloadable format.


New!
A new Child Protection in Sport e-learning course designed for staff and volunteers in sport is now available.

The course (priced £20 pp) is for anyone working or volunteering in sport who comes into contact with children and young people.

The course is particularly suited to volunteers and staff who may have occasional or irregular contact with children, and who are not required to attend face to face safeguarding workshops.

For those who have regular contact with children, like sports coaches, the course can provide a useful precursor to more advanced face-to-face training that is more appropriate to their role and may be a mandatory requirement by their NGB. The e-learning course is not intended to replace face-to-face workshops or courses for individuals whose role require this.

Further information regarding this course is available in the document below.

Our commitments?

Cornwall Sports Partnership is committed to promoting the safety and welfare of children and young people engaged in sporting activities locally. It aims to contribute to safeguarding children and young people by:

  • Meeting and sustaining the Standards for Safeguarding & Protecting Children in Sport through the Child Protection in Sport Unit.
  • Implementing and demonstrating best safeguarding practice when core staff, volunteers or others are providing services, activities and programmes for children and young people.
  • Working with partners to establish and implement agreed consistent minimum safeguarding standards for sports activities locally.
  • Requiring those individuals or organisations that are funded or commissioned to provide any services for children and young people to effectively address safeguarding requirements.
  • Maximising its influence to promote safeguarding practice and principles within its wider partnership roles and relationships.

It is widely accepted that all children and young people have a right to protection and it is the responsibility of every adult employed by or associated with the CSP to protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from abuse.

The CSP undertakes to ensure that every effort is made to safeguard all those who participate in any activities organised by or associated with the CSP.
