It is important to understand if you are setting up virtual videos and making contact with any young person, you need to make sure that there is a neutral setting which doesn’t show any personal information about yourself or your family. No personal information should be shared publicly, including email addresses and personal social media accounts. A central area will need to be created which is an open platform. This protects everyone involved and keeps everything in a public space as it would be in the 'real world'.

What to do if you have any concerns

If you have any concerns, speak to the school or the club welfare officer. Ensure all members of the team or organisation, whether they are coaches or leaders are following the code of conduct policy put in place within the current setting, club or organisation. This will help with the understanding on how to behave in certain situations.

Online Safety

It is important to be mindful of what is being accessed online and understanding that there are benefits and risks to the increased exposure to being online. Benefits can include keeping in touch with friends and family, and even learning a new skill. It can also be a safe place to share experiences and successes and receive instant feedback. The risks of social media include not knowing who you are talking to and people taking advantage of vulnerable people. Further information on keeping young people safe.

What to look out for

Review your privacy settings. For some a profile or account could be an open book where anyone can view. For others it may have tighter restrictions and therefore, no access for the public. It is important that this is the setting that is adopted.

It is equally important to be mindful of who is requesting your 'friendship'. People are not always as they seem, so don't accept anyone you do not know. 

Think before you post. What you post leaves an online footprint which means that once it is posted it is public, even if your profile is private. Anyone can take a copy and share it with others which can impact your future if you are not careful. Additional advice

If you have any concerns or are still unsure if you should contact individuals, then it is best to either contact the parents or do not contact them at all. Please also see London Sport’s useful links for Safeguarding.
