ChildFund is a Pioneer Organisation with the International Safeguards for Children in Sport, which supports sports organisations to ensure that children are physically and emotionally safe.

ChildFund works with rugby partners around the globe to ensure that safeguarding children in rugby activities is a priority.

In addition, ChildFund works to ensure that partners also have in place practices to prevent sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment of adults at all levels of sport. Both of these areas include participants and athletes from the grassroots to the elite levels.

Through our Safeguarding in Sport work, we support National Unions and Regional Associations across Asia, Oceania, Africa and the North Americas through cross-country learning with a focus on organisations establishing entry-level safeguarding practices.

This support provides organisations with practical tools and knowledge to progress their safeguarding practices and ensure that everyone is safe in sport at all levels.
