What we're looking for

We are looking for enthusiastic people from across the UK who are passionate about helping children and young people feel and be safe in sports and physical activities.

What you'll do

Represent the Safe in Sport Volunteer Programme at selected events in your locality, where you will make a difference, through sharing our Child Protection in Sport Unit's resources and gathering insights around safeguarding.

  • Liaise with the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) to learn about safeguarding in sport and physical activity
  • Raise awareness of and signpost to available safeguarding tools and support
  • Promote and encourage event attendees to engage with key messages; especially with themes for sport and physical activity participants, their families, and organisers, to help CPSU support them to keep children and young people safe in sport.
  • Gather insights from event attendees, e.g. by sharing QR survey links
  • Complete a simple event feedback form and return to CPSU
  • Promote the wider work of the NSPCC and CPSU at events

What you'll get

  • Virtual training on safeguarding in sport
  • We'll support you with advice, skills and tools to help you with your role
  • You'll learn more about how you're helping to protect children across the UK, you'll have access to learning and development, and opportunity to grow vital skills and enhance your CV – with references provided by the NSPCC
  • Get to meet likeminded people and make new friends

Who's right for the role?

While we think this role is suitable a whole range of people from all walks of life, the following qualities are desirable:

  • Passion for helping
  • Confident, open and friendly communication style
  • Strong ability to share information with clarity
  • Work well in a team
  • Ability to seek support as required

Knowledge and experience of the sport and physical activity sector would be a bonus but not essential.
