Abstract

This guide is intended to help practitioners and volunteers in sport organisations, clubs and federations to support any child or adult who may disclose an experience or incident of sexual abuse. It is especially aimed at those with responsibility for managing, organizing and delivering sporting activities (in its broadest sense) to children, young people or adults, including those who oversee and manage sporting facilities.

A key feature of VOICE is an active and genuine engagement with those who have experienced sexual violence in the field of sport. At the heart of this approach is the appropriate acknowledgement of lived experiences and the fostering of learning within sport organisations based on their testimony and expertise. Therefore, the content of this guide evolves from 72 research interviews conducted across seven European countries during 2016-2017 and was developed in collaboration with participants from the VOICE-project.
