A key outcome of the VOICE Project was to develop a guide for sport organisations of all sizes to assist them in their efforts to prevent sexual abuse and exploitation and, in particular, to assist them in their engagement with those who have been subjected to sexual violence in sport.

Spanish High Council for Sport and Unicef

The #AbuseStaysOffSide Campaign was developed by Espirales Consultoría de Infancia for the Spanish High Council for Sport in collaboration with Unicef and a group of experts.

The materials are comprised of three Activity Guides aimed at coaches and physical education teachers to work the 10 key messages of the campaign.  These activity guides are aimed at three age groups (3 to 6, 7 to 12 and 13 to 17 year olds).

Additionally, the campaign includes a Guide for Detection of Sexual Abuse in the Context of Sport aimed at professionals and a Guide with Quality Standards to create safe and protective environments for children and young people in the context of sport.
