Safeguarding in sport is a set of actions that help to ensure all children and vulnerable adults participating in sport have a positive experience.

Safeguarding is focused on keeping all children and vulnerable adults safe from harm, abuse, violence, exploitation and neglect.

A key part of safeguarding is spreading the message about keeping children and vulnerable adults safe, to challenge community norms and build a community culture in judo of always acting in the best interest of all children at all times.
