We know you care passionately about ensuring that athletes you work with get a positive and safe introduction to being active in the sport of Cheerleading and whilst Safeguarding processes today are far stronger than 20 years ago, you can’t afford to be complacent.

The recent cases of abuse may well have prompted you to check your Safeguarding process to make sure that documents are up to date and fit for purpose. If you have not already done so, please check that everything is in place and working well and ensure that each member of your coaching team, including volunteers, understands the arrangements and how to put the process into practice.

Simple, practical and independent advice on Safeguarding is available from:

Child Protection in Sport Unit’s website

The unit is hosted by the NSPCC and co-funded by Sport England

You can also get local advice and support from your local authority Safeguarding Children or Adults Boards and if you believe an athlete is at immediate risk or danger, you should contact your local social services or police.
