Self-evaluation form [UEFA]

This form can be used to evaluate progress on implementing safeguarding procedures and processes. It is not an audit and should ideally be completed by the child safeguarding focal point, together with other club/organisation staff members. The form can be used in the development of an action plan to improve safeguarding practices and monitor progress.

 The self-evaluation form is part of the Child safeguarding toolkit for UEFA member associations

In Romania and Greece, Terre des hommes creates a safe environment for children in sports

To "keep children safe in sports" means to prevent and respond to any form by which the child can be negatively affected – emotionally, verbally or physically – during physical training or when they practice performance or recreational sports. Terre des hommes (Tdh) has launched in October 2019 a unique European project, aimed to promote child safeguarding policies in sports settings in Romania and Greece, as a means to protect and safeguard children.

Child safeguarding toolkit for UEFA member associations (FULL)

The child safeguarding toolkit for European football has been developed by UEFA and Terre des hommes to help national associations take measures to protect and safeguard children from abuse and respond to any concerns. The toolkit recognises that many national associations have already introduced good policies, procedures and training, and builds on extensive consultation with national associations and experts.

Six months into the "Keeping children safe in sports" project, carried out by Terre des hommes in Romania and Greece

In October 2019, Terre des hommes (Tdh) launched a unique European project, aimed at promoting child safeguarding policies in sports settings in Romania and Greece, as a means to protect and safeguard children. Through this project, Tdh has committed to make sure that children and young people benefit from special safeguarding policies when practicing various sports. This is how the project activities began and how they evolved.
