Any sport abuse case will be taken seriously

Clear pathways in place

Manx Sport and Recreation is assuring parents, children and the wider community that the safeguarding of youngsters is taken very seriously.

It follows the high-profile stories of abuse in English Football and the ongoing investigations.

Since 2005 over 600 coaches and volunteers have attended safeguarding and protecting children workshops and passed a compulsory Police check.

Gianni Epifani from Manx Sport and Recreation says there are clear pathways in place for anyone wanting to report a concern.
