Duty of Care Working Group to submit recommendations by October

By Matthew Campelli    03 Aug 2016
Sports minister Tracey Crouch unveiled Sporting Future last December

The group that has been tasked with shaping the government’s Duty of Care strategy will submit its recommendations to sports minister Tracey Crouch in the autumn.

Chaired by Paralympic gold medallist Tanni Grey-Thompson, the Duty of Care Working Group is examining issues impacting both grassroots and elite sport, and will deliver its findings in late-September/early-October following a number of meetings.

Education and support for athletes, the prevention and management of medical issues, mental health support, and considering the needs of women, ethnic minorities and the disabled are among the themes that have been discussed, and will be addressed in the final document.

Shaping the recommendations alongside Grey-Thompson in the working group are: British rowing chair Annamarie Phelps, John Amaechi, Baroness Sue Campbell, Mind CEO Paul Farmer, Anne Tiivas, former Premier League footballer Jason Roberts and ex-rugby union player Brian Moore.

Stakeholders had been able to submit their own recommendations for the group to consider as part of a consultation in April.

The Duty of Care review was first referenced in the Department of Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) Sporting Future strategy – the first major piece of sporting policy published by the government in over a decade.
