Where is the Line?

Our short film explores the complexities of duty to care in coaching. It follows the journey of fictional coach Sabrina as she negotiates a catalogue of issues. Can you spot where the line has been crossed and distinguish between good practice and poor practice? By engaging with our high-impact film, replay clips and accompanying guides, you will pick up essential tips and learn the value of putting people’s safety, well-being, and welfare at the centre of what you do

Where is the Line? directs a laser focus on the impact that a coach’s language, actions, and behaviour can have on their participants.

Vincent fails to show a duty to care towards his group and the film exposes his shortcomings as a coach, whilst protégé Sabrina – after witnessing his outmoded and systemic poor practices – develops the courage to challenge Vincent before ultimately showing him the error of his ways.

A key resource in our Duty to Care Hub, dig deeper into the six pillars of duty to care: Diversity, Inclusion, Mental Health and Well-being, Physical Well-being, Safeguarding and Safe to Practice – in a compelling and educational way.

Watch as events unfold and be guided in your learning by our replay clips and accompanying interactive discussion guides

Did you spot the examples of abuse of power and poor practice in the film?
