Every child has a right to be safe from abuse and exploitation, during their lives, and as they play sport.
From 19th November-2nd December 2023, the Solomon Islands will host the Pacific Games. For this campaign, It’s a Penalty, our athlete ambassadors and partner organisations are teaming up to highlight the importance of keeping kids safe, particularly in sport.
