Child Protection Policy

Millions of children and young people take part in sporting activities every day across the world. For our children we focus on recreation, fun and development. Children have the right to participate in sport in a safe and enjoyable environment. Their rights are enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.


From research and evidence it is clear that sport does not always take place with a focus on children’s rights at its centre, or sometimes fails to fully consider the risks to children, leading to cultures that don’t allow for the discussion of harm and abuse.

Our sport for development programmes are provided to extremely vulnerable children who may be affected by violence and abuse in their daily lives and for whom sport should be a safe haven. At Slum Soccer, we seek to ensure that sports provision to these young people takes place in safe environments.

In this regard we have created and adopted a comprehensive Child Protection Policy that defines the guidelines for our staff and volunteers to work with our children.
