It has been a busy week! On top of our work with 1st4sport and the NSPCC (more on that later), we are very pleased to announce that the BKC is now a member of the the Education Expert Reference Group. The group is made up of representatives from a number of leading sports governing bodies and aims to inform the Sport and Recreation Alliance’s influencing work, share good practice and facilitate joined-up working across the sport and recreation sector.
The Government has recently launched a consultation on the terms of reference for the Duty of Care Working Group. The Alliance will be submitting a response on behalf of the group’s members and we have been asked to provide some input on improving educational support for elite sportspeople, as well as topics including injury management, concussions, player pathways and more.
We are honoured to be involved in such far-reaching discussions and look forward to helping shape the landscape of sport as a whole across the UK.
