Sports safeguarding has been major news in the past few weeks, following the series of shocking revelations about sexual abuse in football and other sports. The NSPCC responded to this with a dedicated hotline, supported by the FA, which has already allowed hundreds of callers to speak up. The general NSPCC helpline – 0808 800 5000 – is also available for concerns across all sports.
