Cerebral Palsy Sport supporting National Safeguarding Adults Week

The National Safeguarding Adults Network are launching the first National Safeguarding Adults Week, from 19th – 25th November 2018.

The Network includes members from Sense, Choice Support, Dimensions, Voiceability, United Response, Brandon Trust, MacIntyre, Advance, CVT and the Ann Craft Trust. The Network recognised that organisations around the UK have been creating their own safeguarding weeks through out the year and want to create a time where we can all focus on safeguarding adults. So we can be better, together.

The week will involve national and regional organisations that support adults and a range of activities to raise awareness of Safeguarding Adults.

Cerebral Palsy Sport has the responsibility for creating a safe, fun and inclusive environment for everyone to participate in Cerebral Palsy Sport events and a moral and legal obligation to ensure that the highest possible standard of care is provided for everyone involved in the sport.We have been working with the Ann Craft Trust in 2018 ensuring staff and volunteers are fully trained in Safeguarding.

The Cerebral Palsy Sport Safeguarding policy promotes welfare, equal opportunities and safeguarding regardless of whether you are a participant, coach, volunteer or spectator. The full policy is available to download here
