What is a sports club safeguarding audit?
A safeguarding audit is a full inspection of current processes, policies, and frameworks designed to highlight safeguarding risks within your sporting organisation. You will then receive a written report to take away and implement to ensure the safety and wellbeing of people within your organisation.
Safeguarding audits are all about ensuring that policy is as good as it can be and that those subject to it are following it properly. Keys to Safeguarding have several very experienced safeguarding auditors who are both National Safeguarding Panel Members for Sports Resolution. So, what can you expect?
- Review of policies and procedure to ensure they reflect good practice and are in line with the latest legislative and regulatory requirements
- Review of whether the practice is in line with policies and procedures
- Consulting with staff and service users to ensure a good knowledge and understanding of safeguarding
- A comprehensive report with evidenced-based recommendations.
Depending on the size of an organisation, an audit will take 2-3 days to complete.
