Children have the right to freely express their views and participate in decisions that affect their lives (Art. 12 and 13 of the Convention in the Rights of the Child). Adults working with children in football therefore have a responsibility to encourage and support children’s participation. This includes efforts to keep children and youth safe while involved in football.

What is the webinar about?
Children have the right to freely express their views and participate in decisions that affect their lives (Art. 12 and 13 of the Convention in the Rights of the Child).
This online course was developed by Terre des hommes, within the "Keeping Children Safe in Sports" project. The project aims to promote child safeguarding in sports and summer camp settings in Romania and Greece, however, this knowledge can be applied in all other sport settings.
In the past two years, Terre des hommes (Tdh) has implemented the Keeping Children Safe in Sports project.
This course provides in-depth training for those who require more specialised knowledge, such as child safeguarding focal points and or designated main contacts for child safeguarding who will be managing child-related concerns.
Besides coaches, many people work directly or indirectly with children in football. All of them have the responsibility to be informed about children safeguarding and respond accordingly, when needed. This course will help them in fulfilling this role.
We acknowledge the key role that coaches play in safeguarding children. This specialised course will help coaches to enhance their knowledge and improve child safeguarding practices.
This awareness raising course on child safeguarding in football offers an induction to safeguarding and will be the starting point to reflect on how to keep children safe in football.
Webinar summary: The profile of under-18s and how to communicate effectively with them in football settings
Adults working with children and young people in football are responsible for ensuring a safe, and empowering environment for all children and youth to play football. This includes planning developmentally appropriate and inclusive opportunities to play and enjoy the game.
UEFA, bendradarbiaudama su „Terre des hommes“, pradėjo vaikų saugumo užtikrinimo futbole projektą, kuriuo siekiama padėti UEFA asociacijoms narėms ir kitiems suinteresuotiesiems subjektams sustiprinti žinias ir įgūdžius vaikų saugumo užtikrinimo srityje.
Projektą sudaro vaikų saugumo užtikrinimo priemonių rinkinys ir keturi nuotolinio mokymosi kursai. Nuotolinio mokymosi kursai skirti visiems su vaikais futbole dirbantiems arba šia sritimi besidomintiems asmenims.
