Active Devon is committed to promoting the safety and welfare of all participants engaged in organised sport/active lifestyle activities locally.

It aims to contribute to safeguarding by:

  • Embedding safeguarding in the organised sport/active lifestyle landscape across Devon
  • Implementing and demonstrating best safeguarding practice when its staff, volunteers or others are providing services, activities and programmes for participants of any age
  • Working with its partners to establish and implement agreed, consistent minimum safeguarding standards for organised sport/active lifestyle initiatives locally
  • Requiring those individuals or organisations that it funds or commissions to provide any services for participants to effectively address safeguarding requirements
  • Maximising its influence to promote safeguarding practice and principles within its wider partnership roles and relationships
