WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE SPORT SAFER FOR CHILDREN

WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE SPORT SAFER FOR CHILDREN

As part of GMP’s week of action on Child Sexual Exploitation, Curzon Ashton, in partnership with Phoenix Tameside, is hosting an information evening around Child Sexual Exploitation in Sport. 

We all share responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people especially in the world of sport, because all children have the right to participate in sport in a safe and enjoyable environment.

Unfortunately, as more and more instances of sexual abuse are uncovered, we know that this is not always the case.

The football abuse scandal has highlighted historical gaps in child protection that could make children vulnerable to being abused in sports settings

With speakers from Phoenix Tameside and Manchester FA, the evening will focus on safeguarding policies, early intervention and DBS checks, and will discuss details of fundamental safeguards that should be put in place by any organisation working with children in sport.

This event is open to all community sports groups and we encourage all who work in the field to register their attendance.
