At this year's conference, the CPSU encouraged sports organisations to keep young people at the heart of safeguarding
Launched at Lord's cricket ground in 2001, the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) is a unique partnership between the NSPCC and Sport England to ensure that young athletes are safeguarded and supported.
To mark the anniversary, the CPSU held a conference and evening reception at Wembley Stadium on 5 October. The conference also celebrated the completion of a 3-year partnership between the CPSU and UEFA to help champion safeguarding in youth sport.
The event gave sports organisations from across the UK the chance to speak directly with young people in workshop sessions on numerous safeguarding topics, such as supporting deaf and disabled young people in sport, positive parental behaviour and safeguarding young people with mental health issues.
