World ParaVolley Presents . . .
Safeguarding – It’s everyone’s responsibility
The World ParaVolley Presents… webinar series is proud to offer the third webinar in our Mental Health & Performance series.
Safeguarding our athletes and indeed all our World ParaVolley participants’ mental and physical well-being is of paramount importance.
What does safeguarding in sport mean, and what does it involve? How can you help to ensure that violence, abuse, and harassment is not tolerated in any ParaVolley environment? It is our collective responsibility to prioritize safeguarding.
Whether we are athletes, coaches, technical officials, board members, we must recognize, respond, and report those persons who may be violating safeguarding policies and jeopardizing the physical, mental, emotional safety and well-being of others. As an organization it is our responsibility to respond appropriately.
Join us to hear about the journey of an athlete survivor and to learn from globally recognized experts in the field of safeguarding in sport. Join the discussion on safe sport best practices and how World ParaVolley is working to secure our sport as a place of safety for our athletes and volunteers.
