Everyone has the right to participate in sport and physical activity free from harm and abuse.

Active Essex works in partnership with Essex County Council, the NSPCC’s Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) and the Ann Rice Trust to develop robust policy and procedures to safeguard children and adults at risk. We have achieved the NSPCC and CPSU’s National Advance Standards for safeguarding and protecting children in sport. We work closely with clubs, sports organisations and statutory agencies to ensure that safeguarding is prioritised.
