Active Oxfordshire is committed to making sport and physical activity the safest place possible for all participants.

Our policies are intended to raise awareness and support those working in sport and physical activity, giving them the knowledge they need to protect all involved and to minimise avoidable risks.

Active Oxfordshire has worked closely with the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) to ensure that it has the necessary standards in place. Active Oxfordshire believes that every child and adult who takes part in sport and physical activity has the right to be protected from abuse and to take part in sport and physical activity without risk of harm.

We will do this by:

  • Helping to create a safe sporting environment and protect everyone involved from harm;
  • Providing guidance that helps those involved in sport and physical activity make informed decisions;
  • Promote and embed good practice, and challenge practice which is harmful to children and adults.
