Overview of Safeguarding in DSW

                                                    

Safeguarding Standard for Sport

In Wales, the Safeguarding Standard has two levels which are assessed through the submission of a portfolio of evidence, and a presentation at a panel.  DSW submitted and attained L2 of the standard in December 2014, and then submitted for, and achieved the Level 3 standard in December 2015.  In England the standards are referred to as Intermediate (L2) and Advanced (L3).  After gaining L3 NGBs are monitored on an annual basis so as to ensure that the elements of their action plan are being achieved and that progression and refinement of processes and policies continue.

 

There are 5 criteria for the standard:

  1. Policy
  2. Procedures
  3. Practice
  4. Education and Training
  5. Implementation and Monitoring

 

DSW are the only NGB to have met all the criteria, with no recommendations, at the panel.

 

DSW have the following to underpin good safeguarding practice:
