Children and young people’s worries in sport

The Football Association (FA) nominated the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) through its Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) to be the recipient of the UEFA Children’s Foundation charity award of 1 million Euros over three years.

Throughout the project the NSPCC will be hosting consultations with young people. This first report focussed on the worries young people in sport might have. 100 young people were involved, aged between 9 and 20 from England and Scotland. 80 respondents were male and 20 were female.
