Safeguarding LGBTQ+ young people

LGBTQ+ children and young people face the same risks as all children and young people, but they are at greater risk of some types of abuse.

It's essential that sport or activity providers create a supportive and welcoming culture for all children, safe from harm and a place where they can thrive.

The Child Protection in Sport Unit have updated their LGBTQ+ topic page to include guidance on creating supportive cultures, terminology, and safeguarding LGBTQ+ young people.
