Daniel is a Chartered Psychologist and a Reader in Psychology at Loughborough University. Daniel’s research focuses on the realisation of human rights in, around and through sport. His research was fundamental in the development of the International Safeguards for Children in Sport. The Safeguards are now endorsed by over 400 organisations which collectively work with over 50 million children worldwide. He also lead Project CARE which involved a global census of elite athletes’ experiences regarding how their rights were realised or violated as children in sport. Daniel has an on-going collaboration with the Child Protection in Sport Unit to collate and analyse safeguarding case data. This work has evidenced the need to safeguard children against abuse by a person in a Position of Trust within sport. As a result, sport has been incorporated within related legislation that is currently going through parliament. This will ensure that the age of consent for sexual activity involving an athlete aged 16 or 17 will be increased to 18 and bring sport in line with other sectors such as education, social care and healthcare.
