Young People with additional vulnerabilities

Some young people have additional vulnerabilities and support needs. We want these young people to take part and enjoy the benefits of physical activity and sport and they can. To create this safe and welcoming environment, organisers of activities need to take some time to think about any additional safeguarding measures required for these young people, whether playing for fun or competing at national or international level.

By following the links you can find more information on why these young people could be more vulnerable and what you could do to support them more.
