VIDEO: The difference between child protection and safeguarding
April 24, 2021 | by Matt Halfpenny
England Boxing members who are involved in deliveries activities with children are urged to watch a new short film produced by the Child Protection in Sport Unit.
It outlines the difference between child protection and safeguarding in a sports setting and looks in more depth at how children and young people can be further protected beyond their time at training sessions.
The video also takes a closer look at contextual safeguarding and how, by looking at where young people practice skills in their spare time, how they travel to practice or where they go afterwards, we can help to make them even safer.
The video may be of particular interest to Club Welfare Officers and Coaches. To watch the video, click here.
