Tipperary Sports Partnership to organize child welfare and protection training


Tipperary Sports Partnership facilitates basic awareness training on child welfare and protection in sport.

The course is aimed at sports leaders, child care providers, parents or anyone working with young people in sport. A central goal for all involved in youth sport is to provide a safe, supportive and nurturing environment where children can develop and improve their physical and social skills.

The promotion of a child-centered environment must go hand in hand with the identification and elimination of practices which have a negative impact on safe and enjoyable participation in sport for young people.

The next workshops in the series will be facilitated by tutors from Sport Ireland via Zoom from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on February 7, February 14, March 7, March 14, April 4 and April 11.

The training will allow those responsible for children / sports leaders to

• Implement best practices to protect the well-being of participants

• Create a child-centered environment within the sports club

• List the categories of abuse and some indicators associated with the abuse

• Respond appropriately to a disclosure

• Report to the designated agent or appropriate statutory authorities.

To book your visit to the place www.tipperarysports.ie. The cost is € 15, plus booking fees.

Please reserve early, as places are limited in the workshop. A certificate of attendance will be issued at the end of the training.
