Safer Culture Safer Sport Online Seminar Series

Throughout the #SaferCultureSaferSport campaign, we have promoted the foundations of a safer culture.

Safer cultures:

  • Listen
  • Learn
  • Lead

As part of the Learn foundation, we are asking organisations to create a culture of learning.

A learning organisation encourages and facilitates continual learning from actions and approaches. Organisations can help to build this by creating processes with time for reflection. So processes should include steps to problem solve, evaluate success and result in action or feeding the learning back into the process for next time.

This seminar will:

  • Explore the learning and examine key findings from past inquiries in the sport sector to improve safeguarding practice and apply learning to all.
  • Reflect on what actions could be altered in the future to facilitate best practice and minimise the risk of harm.
  • Examine such questions as: Why do the same issues come up in inquiries time and time again? Why haven’t we learned the lessons?
  • Look beyond recognising and recording learning, to taking action and effectively embedding the learning into practice to create and support safer cultures.

Date: Tuesday 26 April 2022
Time: 2.00 pm – 3.00 pm

Meet The Presenter

The seminar will be presented by Paul Stephenson, who has worked for the NSPCC for over twenty years as a Child Protection in Sport Senior Consultant.

As part of this role, Paul has coordinated the examination of several reviews into safeguarding practice in sport to produce a summary of the learning from these reviews. There are repeat themes within the different reviews that all organisations can learn from. These reviews can help sport organisations to ensure they are providing  a safe, positive and enjoyable experience for everyone.
