The Centre for Sport and Human Rights takes a zero-tolerance approach to any form of bullying, harassment, physical, emotional or sexual abuse or sexual exploitation, This approach is re-emphasised with respect to children and vulnerable adults. In all actions and decisions, the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and their best interests will be the paramount consideration for all that we do. We are committed to ensuring that anyone working or associated with us in any capacity does not harm, abuse or commit any act of violence against a child or a vulnerable adult or take action or fail to act, resulting in risk to a child or vulnerable adult.
Safeguarding is integrated into our Code of Conduct and Policy Handbook. These commitments are summarised in our Policy Statement on Safeguarding. While we offer a generic channel for complaints about the Centre, we treat any safeguarding related concern as an urgent priority and you should email us on:
You can also submit a safeguarding related concern anonymously via the online form below. Emails to this account or submissions via the form will be forwarded immediately to our Safeguarding Advisor and be copied to our Chief Executive.

What not to report
Please note that this is not intended as a mechanism to raise complaints or grievances about safeguarding issues in the world of sport that are not directly connected to us as an organisation. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources or expertise to take on specific cases or give advice to people who want to report human rights violations. We regret that we are unable to investigate individual cases in this way or offer contact to any of our Advisory Council members in relation to individual cases. In order to ensure we are able to effectively respond to urgent safeguarding issues connected to us, we request that queries about broader issues or for enquires related to safeguarding advice be addressed to our Safeguarding Advisor via the regular means of contacting us.
