Youth Sport Trust welcomes Government’s Sport Duty of Care Review

The Youth Sport Trust has welcomed the Government's review into the duty of care sport has towards participants which launched yesterday (12 April). This review, which is being led by disability sport pioneer and 11-time Paralympic gold medallist Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, commences with a call for evidence inviting members of the public and all those involved in sport to submit insight.

The aim of the review is to develop a comprehensive plan for how government and the whole sport sector can more effectively look after people. Views and experiences of what works well and how current systems could be improved is being invited from those working in elite and grassroots sport, and in the pathways and organisations supporting both.

At the elite sport level the review seeks to understand:

  • the experience of entering and leaving talent pathways
  • the prevention and management of brain injuries, catastrophic injuries and other medical issues
  • the mental health support offered to sport participants
  • the representation of athletes’ interests within sport governance
  • the support provided to people on talent pathways to help them gain a formal education
  • safeguarding of young people and adults

Whilst the grassroots sport level the review calls for evidence on the prevention and management of brain injuries, catastrophic injuries and other medical issues and the safeguarding of young people and adults.

This evidence gathering phase is open for the submission of public insight until 23 May. To support this review and to complete an survey please complete the online form.
