Safeguarding Adults in Sport Participation Groups

In this free seminar as part of Safeguarding Adults Week, Nicola Dean and Sarah Goff will be exploring how using appropriate language can promote inclusion both with other professionals and the people you support.


This free seminar will take the format of an informal discussion, encouraging delegates to reflect on the language that they use within their sector and whether this can be adapted to minimise hierarchy and promote participation and inclusion.

This seminar is relevant to people working across a range of sectors from sport and activity, health and social care, education, the third sector and beyond.

Date: Friday 19 November 2021

Time: 10.00-11.00am

Location: Online Microsoft Teams Session

The seminar will explore questions such as:

  • How can acronyms be a barrier to participation and inclusion?
  • How can we use language to ensure that everyone understands their role in safeguarding and can collaborate effectively?
  • What is appropriate language and what do we need to think about in deciding that?
  • How can we de-stigmatise language?

There will be the opportunity to participate in an online Q&A as part of the seminar. We encourage you to bring any questions you have to the session.
