The study is titled "Safeguarding and protection of children in sport: Safeguarding - Examining the need for protection of children in sport and recreation settings in three Caribbean countries" and is part of the regional research project titled: "The Contribution of Sport for Development programs in the Caribbean to health, education, social inclusion, gender and disability".

The purpose of the study is to assess the need for the protection of children in three Caribbean countries and thus contribute to the development of appropriate safeguarding procedures and policies in the Caribbean.

The study focuses on three (3) issues surrounding cultural, organizational, policy, and political factors influencing safeguarding of children within and outside sports;

  1. Awareness of and attitudes to issues surrounding safeguarding children and young people in sport
  2. Existence or absence of formal policies, guidelines and legal requirements to protect children and young people in sport
  3. Need for training and resource support to support the protection of children and young people in sport

Methodology: To collect these data the researchers conducted qualitative interviews with program implementers in schools, including classroom/PE teachers and principals, as well as interviews with government representatives from department of Sport, Health and Education. Safeguarding data were collected using focus groups with representatives from different sport/youth-centered organizations, in two countries (Trinidad and Dominica).
