Even for those experienced in working with child abuse, it is not always easy to recognise a situation where abuse may occur or has already taken place. If anyone has a concern about a child or young person, it is not an option to do nothing. The staff and volunteers in sport, whether in a paid or voluntary capacity, are not experts at such recognition. However, they do have a responsibility to act if they have any concerns about the behaviour of someone (an adult or another child) towards a child. Initially any concerns should be shared/discussed with the club/league welfare officer or the ETTA’s Child Protection Officer who can be contacted on 07977243327 either in or out of office hours.
