Call for sports organisations to have child protection policies

From Nine To Noon, 9:33 am on 13 May 2014

Child protection organisations say too many sporting clubs and organisations don't have child protection policies, which is leaving children vulnerable to abuse. There have been eight cases in the past two years of sports coaches being charged with or convicted of abusing children they were coaching. Paul Cameron is the Chief Executive of Volleyball New Zealand. Anthea Simcock is the Chief Executive of Child Matters.
