The Irish Football Association’s Child Welfare Department has teamed up with one of the world’s leading experts in child protection to launch the first ever safeguarding in sport app.

The Safeguarding Children and Young People in Football app, which was launched at the Culloden Hotel, has been developed in partnership with Jim Gamble CEO of INEQE, who is recognised internationally for his expertise in child protection.

Jim Gamble, who is the former head of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Agency and founding chair of the Virtual Global Taskforce on child protection, praised the Association’s proactive and forward- thinking approach to safeguarding: “This app will empower coaches, child welfare officers, parents and young players by giving them accurate up-to-date information and advice, when they need it.”

The app is available from Apple’s App Store (search IFA Safeguarding).

with an Android version to follow in the near future.
