Mapping of good practices relating to social inclusion of migrants through sport [European Commission]

The aim of this study is to provide an analytical overview of the types of sports related projects and interventions used to support the social inclusion of migrants and to identify best practice in their design, implementation and measurement. The study used a literature review, stakeholder interviews and an analysis of the key strengths and success factors of relevant projects based on a typology.

Action plan and progress form [UEFA]

This form can be used to plan the actions required to meet minimum child safeguarding requirements and to further develop safeguarding procedures. It should be completed annually, but reviewed regularly (every three months is recommended). The progress shown in the self-evaluation form should inform the actions required in this form.

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

Template: Specific risk assessments (activities) [UEFA]

Although a general risk assessment should be conducted every year, it is always useful to conduct a risk assessment when there is a specific event, such as an overnight trip or a tournament, as it is likely that there will be particular issues to consider.

The items included in the template are suggestions only, and should be adapted to the specific nature of the event and the club/organisation. As with the general risk assessment, after the hazards have been identified, the specific risks to children should be pinpointed.

Guidance note: Supervision of activities and trips, including overnight stays [UEFA]

Travelling to away games and tournaments should be both safe and fun for children. Parents and carers will often worry when their children are away, but careful planning
and preparation should help to ease those worries and demonstrate that you have considered the various needs of their children and the potential dangers of a trip away.

Template: Medical form [UEFA]

The medical form should be completed before the child leaves for a long trip or overnight event. It should be kept by the accompanying adults in case of an emergency and must be kept confidential.

In some countries, children cannot be given medication by anyone other than a medical professional, in which case this form should not be used to record anything other than contact details and basic information regarding allergies, etc. which can
be passed on to the hospital in case of an emergency.
