Safeguarding in sport

To cultivate sport’s positive impact on society, it is crucial to establish and maintain safe, healthy, diverse, and inclusive environments that foster the growth and success of athletes and officials.

Ensuring effective safeguarding measures is a fundamental duty of all sports organisations.

Clue for safeguarding in sport  

Policy, procedure, and training provide a solid foundation for safeguarding. However, successful implementation depends on ongoing risk assessment and reliable reporting mechanisms that instil trust and confidence in athletes and other participants.  

With Clue, sports organisations can improve safeguarding reporting and case management, leading to enhanced outcomes and better safeguarding practices. 

Trusted reporting

Clue offers a secure and confidential platform for people to easily report concerns related to safeguarding with confidence.  

Clue Confidential Reporting allows for anonymous reporting, including the attachment of supporting documentation such as photos and videos.  

The platform also facilitates data capture through manual input, form entry, and API integration, ensuring that information is structured and immediately searchable for further action. 

Early detection

Clue connects data, information, and intelligence to help you identify patterns of systematic behaviour and prevent risks.  

Using the ‘Golden Nominal’ principle ensures entities exist in your system only once to easily identify links between people, teams, locations, threat types, and event types to surface and explore hotspots, trends, and behaviour patterns.  

Data reports and visualisations can be exported for knowledge sharing and early intervention.  

Safe and secure disclosure

Clue Confidential Reporting advances on traditional reporting mechanisms and third-party solutions, offering Clue users the most secure and direct channel for confidential disclosure.

Secure data sharing

Clue adheres to a recognised intelligence dissemination model for disclosures to relevant bodies. 

Your system can be linked to multiple sources via API, and tasks can be assigned with tailored notifications. 

Common themes and behaviours can be identified, and case files and reports can be quickly exported in compliant formats for law enforcement, disciplinary processes, or educational interventions. 

Robust case management

Clue helps you adhere to safeguarding and policy standards and maintain data integrity by following accepted and auditable processes.  

Quickly triage and assign tasks, with progress tracking and alerts, ensures sensitive information is held compliantly, and actions are fully auditable.  

Customisable permissions and visibility based on roles and concern sensitivity help ensure quick and appropriate incident resolution.
