You’ll find information and resources on the quality standards Jersey Sport recommend to create an inclusive, secure, and reliable platform for all sport and physical activity on island, below.
Safeguarding in sport is everyone’s business – from code of conducts, protecting data, implementing policies, upskilling welfare officers, training your members, dealing with concerns, and so much more.
Here’s how to ensure your sports organisation meets our quality standards and can implement on-going good practice:
Listen to some local sports organisations talking about best Safeguarding and Welfare practice within their sports organisation:
The organisation has necessary provision in place for the safeguarding and welfare of its members
The organisation collects and safely stores all members registration details – to include information on contact details, disability, medical conditions, parental consent(s) and emergency contact information
The organisation demonstrates how it follows National Governing Body, CPSU / World Federation guidance regarding photography, mobile phones, social media, and on-island events
