UK Athletics Safeguarding Review


On 31 July 2020 UK Athletics (UKA) published the Executive Summary and Recommendations of Christopher Quinlan QC’s Independent Safeguarding Review. Christopher, Head of our Sports Law Team, conducted the Review with support from Sport Resolutions.

The Review, first announced in December 2019 and launched in March 2020, was commissioned by UKA in collaboration with the Home Country Athletics Federations (HCAF) to evaluate existing safeguarding provision in athletics against the highest known standards of best practice in sport.

UKA CEO Joanna Coates said:

“I welcome the findings of the Safeguarding Review which clearly lay out what is required of UK Athletics and the Home Country Athletics Federations through the comprehensive set of recommendations.”
