The association Safe Sport is the sponsor of the independent point of contact for victims of sexualized, psychological and physical violence and was founded at the Conference of Sports Ministers on 03.11.2022.
The founding members are the Federal Ministry of the Interior and Home Affairs, the 16 federal states, Athletes Germany e.V., a representative from the Council of Victims of the Office of the Independent Commissioner for Child Sexual Abuse (UBSKM), and a representative from academia. The honorary board currently consists of Prof. Dr. Ilse Hartmann-Tews, Steffi Jones and Gitta Schwarz. The full-time employees staff the office in Berlin, which was opened in July 2023.
Anlauf gegen Gewalt is an initiative of Athleten Deutschland e.V. (Athletes Germany), whose support services are aimed exclusively at squad athletes in top-class sports. We support those seeking advice from both amateur and elite sports.
If necessary, “Anlauf gegen Gewalt” offers process support, i.e. the colleagues also contact associations at the request of those affected. We are independent and do not approach associations or organizations.
Initial counselling at “Anlauf gegen Gewalt” takes place via phone through N.I.N.A. e.V. or as referral counselling to external psychologists and lawyers. With us, on the other hand, you will be advised directly by a psychologist or a lawyer.
