“Everybody has the right to play sport in a fun, safe and respectful atmosphere. This is especially the case for children and young people to help them reach their full sporting development and potential. Safeguarding is essential to create that environment – one where athletes and players of all ages, gender and background can learn new skills, socialise and have their sporting talent nurtured, without fear of harm and abuse. Safeguarding is one of the most positive investments a sports organisation can make - for all those involved and for the reputation of the sport”.

Kathryn Leslie, Senior Safeguarding Manager at FIFA.
