Safeguarding & Welfare

The Events Welfare Plan 2019 has been formulated in order to help safeguard and protect children and young people competing in and volunteering at the SPAR Lancashire School Games.

Whilst safeguarding young people and vulnerable adults is of paramount importance for Active Lancashire, it resolutely affirms that the welfare and safety of children, young people and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of everyone that is involved within sport, whatever their role.

Active Lancashire recognises that, in the first instance, schools should follow their own school policy regarding the safeguarding and protection of children. However, if school policies are not sufficiently robust, fit for purpose or adequately understood, Active Lancashire has developed a Lancashire School Games Events Welfare Plan 2019, which provides guidelines and procedures that should be followed at each event, should an incident or accident occur.  A copy of the Events Welfare Plan 2019 can be downloaded here:
