Introductory Video to Implementing a Safeguarding Adults Policy
Safeguarding adults is everybody’s responsibility. If you are delivering physical activity and sport to adults, it is good practice to create, adopt and implement an adult safeguarding policy. You should also ensure all of your committee members, leaders, coaches, members and participants understand the foundations of implementing the policy and how to spot and act upon concerns. To help you, Club Matters have worked with the Ann Craft Trust to create this introductory video.
