StreetGames and Safeguarding children and young people

StreetGames operates in a child and young person centred way when it comes to developing and delivering its programmes and oppurtunities. The welfare and safety of young people is always at the forefront of our minds. 

Through StreetMark we want to encourage all organisations to review their approach to safeguarding, welfare and child protection. Is your organisation doing all it can to ensure the welfare and safety of young people and giving them the best possible experience at your sessions or activities?

StreetMark begins with organisations demonstrating they have demonstrated to StreetGames that it has the following in place:

  • Safeguarding policy
  • A clear process for checking the appropriateness of staff - including DBS checks (if not included in the safeguarding policy)
  • Health and Safety policy
  • Relevant Insurance
  • Data protection policy

During the course of our own safeguarding work, we will identify a number of organisations who are applying for StreetMark to meet and discuss with them their safeguarding policies and procedures. By doing this we are trying to learn what approaches different organisations take, identify areas of good practice or areas of development in which StreetGames may be able to support your organisation or link you to a relevant partner. StreetGames works closely with the Child Protection in Sport Unit to ensure we are aware of any current issues relating to the safety and welfare of children and young people and are able to pass this onto StreetMark holders.
