Focus on children; Strengthening Policies in Sports and Leisure ACTIVitiEs
Sports plays a decisive role in children development, promoting important values, social inclusion and a healthier way of life. However, violence in sports remains an alarming phenomenon with limited implementation of policy measures tackling the issue. ACTIVE goal is to promote the embedding of child safeguarding policies by sports clubs, extra-curricular activities organisations as well as leisure and recreational clubs working with children. The projects aims at improving knowledge of sports organisations around the prevention of violence against children in the field of sports and at enhancing sports professionals’ skills in preventing violence cases against children in the field of sports. The project will attempt to tackle these by developing an online self-assessment tool, allowing sports and leisure clubs to identify and address gaps in terms of implementation of Child Protection Polices in their premises.
