Sport Resolutions is seeking members for the SCMP Legal Advice Service

Sport Resolutions is inviting law firms, barristers’ chambers and other legal service providers to join the SCMP Legal Advice Service.

As recently announced the SCMP is designed to complement and not replace the safeguarding function of participating NGBs. The Programme will provide all participating NGBs access to expert safeguarding and legal support from members of the National Safeguarding Panel (NSP), at no cost to those NGBs, in the following areas:

  • Service 1 - Initial advice and assistance following a referral or disclosure,
  • Service 2 - Investigations, and
  • Service 3 - Provision of independent first instance and appeal panels.

The purpose of the SCMP Legal Advice Service is to provide the NGBs participating in the SCMP with expert legal assistance in preparing for and/or attendance at safeguarding disciplinary hearings administered by Sport Resolutions under Service 3. A fixed rate fee will apply save for in exceptional circumstances when a request may be made for pro bono assistance.

Assistance may include giving general advice, bundle creation, hearing preparation and/or representation at safeguarding hearings. This list is non-exhaustive.
