Safeguarding at Laureus Sport for Good
Any child or young person engaging with a programme or activity supported by Laureus Sport for Good should be and feel safe and protected. The welfare and interests of children and young people are paramount in all circumstances.
The Policy provides a set of guiding principles and procedures to ensure that Laureus Sport for Good continues to do all in its power to protect and empower the children and young people it impacts upon, wherever they may be. The Policy applies to all Laureus Sport for Good staff, trustees, associates, Academy, ambassadors, patrons, sponsors, contractors, grantees, volunteers, visitors, etc.
- All children have the right to participate, enjoy and develop through sport and otherwise, in a safe and inclusive environment, free from all forms of abuse, violence, deliberate neglect and exploitation.
- All individuals and organisations working with children and young people directly or indirectly, including both service providers and funders, have a responsibility to foster the care and protection of the children and young people they (impact on) and act at all times in the best interests of the child.
- Some children are more vulnerable than others to abuse, and organisations working with children need to take steps to assess and address the different levels of risk that children in their programmes may face.
- Everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and respect and not be discriminated against based on age, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, and beliefs, religious or political affiliation.
Whilst these standards have been developed in relation to children (aged under 18) they will also provide the framework for good practice in relation to other stakeholder groups, such as young or vulnerable adults.
