Safeguarding in the Performing Arts and Sport Sector

Date: Thursday, 20th Aug 2020 | Category: Uncategorized

Does a child or young person in a household you work with, Dance, Act or take part in Sport?

Are they the next X factor champion?

Do you run events that young people attend?

Would it help to have some guidance?

The last thing we all want to do is stop young people enjoying themselves, but should we consider the potential risk?

There is assistance available to help you talk to organisers of events.

What do you to tell them if they ask about taking photographs, or parents wanting to take photo’s.

What about the parent or carer who wants to coach a sports team?

“Safeguarding is Everyone’s Responsibility”

It is the house that you visit, the sports event you attend, a play or dance that a child or young person is involved in.

We all need to be aware,  look and listen to what the child or young person maybe telling us.

If you “See Something- Say Something”

Safeguarding is not a Game

It could be hidden within an Event.

So don’t Dance around the issue,,

Act now to keep a child or young person safe.
