To maintain a safe and sustainable sport environment, it is vital Jersey continues to develop a strong, vibrant and well-supported sports community.
A growing and evolving network of organisations and workforce will be essential if we are to ensure all islanders can play any sport or take part in any physical activity to the extent of their ability and desire.
Safe and Sustainable Quality Standards is a framework of minimum expected standards and recommendations for high quality sport and physical activity delivery. The framework has evolved from previous accreditation schemes (such as ClubMark) into a developmental resource with a purpose to promote, improve and enhance the local offer of sport and physical activity for all.
We have purposely moved away from accreditation schemes to avoid the sense and misconception that being safe and sustainable in sport is ever a ‘done’ job. Rather, the Safe and Sustainable Quality Standards are an on-going benchmark for all users of sport to expect and for all providers of sport to aspire to. These quality standards are applicable to all clubs, associations, groups and charities who offer sports and physical activity opportunities in Jersey.
