The Safe Clubs 4 Kids initiative encourages and
supports the sport and active recreation industry to
create and maintain safe environments for children
and young people.

environment without the risk of harm. Most people
who volunteer or work with children are safe and do
so to make a positive contribution and help children
develop to their full potential.
