Scort is closely co-operating with a variety of partner organisations to jointly overcome social challenges.
Sport for Protection
Since 2021, Scort has been leading the Sport for Refugees Coalition as a co-convener, together with UNHCR and the IOC Olympic Refuge Foundation, and contributes to its strategic and operational development. As a co-convener, Scort ensures the regular sharing, exchange and discussion of best practices and challenges in Sport for Protection projects among coalition members, with the aim of improving the psychosocial well-being and integration of people forced to flee to host communities.
In light of the upcoming UNHCR Global Refugee Forum 2023, Scort is contributing to the design and promotion of the Joint Pledge on Sport for Inclusion and Protection, ensuring a shared commitment among several stakeholders to empower people seeking protection through sport.

Child Online Protection in Sports
Since the establishment of the strategic partnership in 2020, Scort and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) have been raising awareness among sports organisations about online risks and promoting safe digital media use. In 2022, recommendations were developed to support sports organisations in integrating online safety into their protection concepts and providing a safe space for children in sports.
