UNICEF UK & International Standards for Safeguarding Children in Sport
In September 2014, Norman Brook facilitated a session at Keeping Children Safe 2014 Conference held in Cape Town on the International Standards for Safeguarding Children in Sport developed by UNICEF UK. Norman lead the session with Elizabeth Benninger, Waves for Change and Sally Warren, Keeping Children Safe.
Keeping Children Safe is a membership network of organisations working together to increase safeguards offered to children. Keeping Children Safe strives to ensure children globally are safeguarded and protected from all forms of violence, abuse and exploitation. It was formed in 2001 by some of the leading international development agencies in response to incidences of abuse and exploitation of children that were arising as a result of organisations work with vulnerable communities.
Later last year in November in Johannesburg, Norman arranged for South African football legend Amnadla Dlamini to announce the launch of the standards at the Beyond Sport conference. Watch the launch here.
