Children and young people’s worries in sport

The Football Association (FA) nominated the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) through its Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) to be the recipient of the UEFA Children’s Foundation charity award of 1 million Euros over three years.

This award will enable the NSPCC to extend our reach through a range of universal national services, which focus on protecting children and young people and preventing abuse, further into the sport sector, within football in particular.

To enable these services to be fit for purpose, NSPCC will be hosting consultations with young people over the course of the project. This will ensure that the right and relevant information is out there to support young people involved in sport.

For this round of consultations, we involved 100 young people aged between 9 and 20 from England and Scotland. 80 respondents were male and 20 were female.
