Spond and ECPAT Norway are committed to ensuring that the best interests of children and young people involved in activities are withheld and protected. A central goal for all involved in children’s activities is to provide a safe, positive, and nurturing environment where children can develop and enhance their physical and social skills.
When it comes to safeguarding, you are never on your own. If you are concerned about a child, there are always people who can provide advice and support. To find out who they are in your environment, go to the resources page and click on the links.
If something looks, sounds, or feels wrong – report it.
If you have concerns about the well-being of a child, or children, it’s important that you share these with the right people. You should always bear in mind, however, that it is not your responsibility to judge whether or not a child is being abused but to report your concerns appropriately.
For non-urgent concerns, there are several options available, including seeking support from your national governing body (if applicable), local authority social care services, the NSPCC, or the Child Protection in Sport Unit.
Call 911 for emergency services right away.
