Our Child Protection in Sport Unit and sports coach UK have helped thousands of coaches across the UK receive child protection training
Over 410,000 sporting professionals now understand how to recognise and respond to child abuse after attending the specialist safeguarding workshops – which are celebrating 20 years of success this year.
Two million sports sector workers come into contact with over 10 million children every week in the UK – and the renowned workshops are now recognised globally as an example of good practice.
The scheme has grown in popularity over the years, to the point where an average of 30,000 coaches from a wide range of sports now attend workshops every year. The project is also helping us raise valuable funds with royalties paid on the workshops raising over £1 million.
