Safeguarding Young Leaders in Sport for 13-15 year olds

It is everyone's responsibility to respond to any wellbeing or protection issues involving a child or young person. This includes young leaders working with children and young people as they also need to know how to respond to a child/young person who may be in need of help and how to keep themselves safe.
