Intermediate Level of the Standards for Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sport was recently awarded to the National Ice Skating Association (NISA) to recognise the organisation’s continued development in safeguarding standards.
The NSPCC Child Protection in Sports Unit (CPSU) recently accredited NISA with Intermediate Level of the Safeguarding Standards following a thorough assessment of its processes, procedures and safeguarding policies.
This important piece of work has been led by NISA National Lead Safeguarding Officer Michelle Draper, who has evidenced the work and progress the organisation has made to meet the criteria for the Standards.
NISA Development Director David Hartley said: “The achievement of these standards is acknowledgement of the hard work and commitment of the organisation to ensure Safeguarding is embedded in all of the work we do.
“Our safeguarding framework is there to protect and support members, coaches, parents and everyone involved in our great sport.
“I want to thank NISA’s National Lead Safeguarding Officer Michelle Draper, who has put a lot of time and effort into evidencing our work and ensuring we meet the Intermediate Level Standards.
“We are continuously developing and progressing, and it’s fantastic to be able to keep hitting these milestones.
“Now we look to keep on improving, as we plan for big changes which will continue to benefit everyone across the sport.”
