  1. You never know who and when a person will confide in you.
  2. To ensure that volunteers keep themselves safe as well as the athletes.

This three-hour workshop reflects on practice, is aimed primarily at coaches and builds on knowledge gained on the Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) workshop.

Outcomes for delegates include increasing awareness, helping recognise the signs of abuse and poor practice and helping to deal sensitively and effectively with issues that arise.

In order to keep knowledge up to date in this area, it is recommended that individuals first attend the SPC workshop and follow this up with SPC 2 every two to three years.
