THE CHILD PROTECTION IN SPORT UNIT
The Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) is a partnership between the NSPCC, Sport England, Sport Northern Ireland and Sport Wales. (In Scotland, there’s a similar partnership between Children 1st and Sport Scotland.) The Unit was founded in 2001 to work with UK Sports Councils, National Governing Bodies (NGBs), County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) and other organisations to help them minimise the risk of child abuse during sporting activities. It’s mission is to build the capacity of sports to safeguard children and young people in and through sport and to enable sports organisations to lead the way in keeping children safe from harm.

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) work with safeguarding and child protection partners across the UK and overseas.
It protects children from harm online and offline with a focus on child sexual exploitation and online protection issues.
If you work with children and young people or are a parent and want to know more about keeping children safe online, you can use CEOP’s Thinkuknow education resources.
If you are worried that someone has acted inappropriately towards your child or another child you may know or work with, you can report this. This may include things like sexualised chat, being asked to meet up, or being asked to do something that made the child feel uncomfortable.
Any member of the public – whether a child, parent or professional – can report a concern about child sexual abuse or online exploitation to our CEOP safety centre. All reports are assessed and responded to by CEOP’s specialist Child Protection Advisors. If a police response is necessary, it would be conducted in partnership with your local police force.
Please remember that if a child or young person is in immediate danger then always call 999
