Safeguarding children in sport
Find out how we are tackling child abuse in sport and supporting survivors.
The Offside Trust is the organisation led by ex-footballer Steve Walters and former professional golfer Chris Unsworth, whose stories of child sexual abuse have inspired hundreds of people to speak out for the first time.
We are set up as a 'restricted fund' under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund (UK charity number 1099682).
We are established as the independent body to work alongside clubs, organisations and other charitable bodies to further enhance safeguarding at all levels of sport.
The Offside Trust works to combat child abuse in sport and support the healing journey of survivors.
We are building partnerships, and learning how we can make the greatest difference where it is needed most.
If you are a victim or survivor of abuse, you can contact us and we will listen. We are an organisation run BY SURVIVORS, FOR SURVIVORS. We can help you to navigate the first steps along your healing journey and offer practical advice and support from people who understand exactly what you are going through.
Thank you again for your overwhelming support!
