We take our responsibility for ensuring that those who work with children and young people through Doorstep Sport are well-governed and deliver in a way that keeps children and young people safe extremely seriously. Whenever we invest funding in our network we carry out due diligence checks on things like policies and procedures and talk to delivery partners about their practices. We also offer support to organisations to develop areas of practice such as safeguarding and help them to be better set up to receive funding from others. This is not about ‘checking up’ but is focused on ensuring that our investment is used in the right way and that the organisations we support are well-run and ready  for the long term. These relate to safeguarding and child protection, governance, health and safety and data protection/sharing. More information can be provided on the process for applying for investment once you have joined the network.
