Child Protection Advice

Support for Clubs 

In light of recent media attention, we are aware that clubs from across all sports may have increased anxiety about child protection. If your club is affiliated to a governing body you can contact your SGB CPLO or Safeguarding in Sport at 0141 419 1156 for advice, guidance and help. If your club is not affiliated to a governing body you can contact Safeguarding in Sport directly.

Our advice to clubs with junior members would be to ensure that you have:

If somebody raises child protection concerns in relation to a coach / volunteer who is currently practicing then you should follow your ‘Responding to Concerns’ procedure. If it is a historical allegation then you should follow the same procedure and signpost the individual to Police Scotland on ‘101’. If you have a concern about a child’s immediate safety then this should be passed on to Police or Social Work.
