Nominations are open for the Safeguarding Stars awards!
Does your club have an outstanding Welfare Officer? Has someone gone the extra mile in helping to safeguard young people? If so, why not nominate them for a Safeguarding Stars award?
Nominations are now open for the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) Safeguarding Stars awards, with this year’s focus on individuals identified as making a significant contribution to safeguarding children and young people who are particularly vulnerable.
The CPSU would particularly like to hear about the achievements of individuals at club, facility or activity level who have helped to include and safeguard young people who may, for example, be disabled, LGBT, elite young athletes, at risk of social exclusion, or part of other vulnerable groups.
All nominees will receive an acknowledgment from the CPSU. As has been done in previous years, a panel of young sports people will review the nominations and select the six nominees who they believe have made outstanding contributions to inclusion and safeguarding in their club, organisation or sport.
These six nominees will be invited to attend the CPSU Lead Officers' event Safeguarding children – celebrating difference on 14 October 2015, which will include a Safeguarding Stars presentation.
