Think Active Safeguarding and Welfare
Think Active is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety, both physical and emotional, of every child and adult at risk, who participates in activities either directly organised by Think Active or through partners working collaboratively with us.
We firmly believe that everyone has the right to take part in sport free from harm, bullying or persecution and that sport can play a significant role in the social, emotional, physical and moral development of young people and adults. Sport helps people grow and develop, and can provide opportunities for enjoyment and achievement. Through sport young people and adults can develop valuable qualities such as leadership, confidence and self-esteem.
Everyone has the right to have fun, be safe and free from harm whether training for a local team, playing for a local club or representing their sport and country at international level.
