The Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) is a partnership between the NSPCC, Sport England, Sport Northern Ireland and Sport Wales. In Scotland there is a similar partnership between Children 1st and sportscotland.
The Unit was founded in 2001 to work with UK Sports Councils, National Governing Bodies (NGBs), County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) and other organisations to help them minimise the risk of child abuse during sporting activities.
Amongst an extremely useful and comprehensive resource library with information available to download in template form, case studies, videos, best practice documents, policy, research and video links etc., you can also subscribe to the CPSU e-newsletter and obtain information on training and events.
