Today Sport England and UK Sport have published an action plan which they have developed together as a joint response to the Whyte review.
We, Snowsport England, will work through the implications for us as an NGB and are committed to supporting the implementation of the action plan in partnership with Sport England.
The commitments laid out by both Sport England and UK Sport include:
- The continued development of the Safeguarding Case Management Programme to help organisations access expert support in relation to safeguarding
- Sport Integrity, the independent disclosure and investigations service, becoming mandatory for all UK Sport funded sports
- The funding of a national network of welfare officers to promote good practice and safe sport at a local level.
