Welfare

We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of all children, young persons and adults at risk in our sport and our aim is to ensure all who participate in gymnastics have a safe, fun, positive experience and are able to fulfill their potential.

 

Working alongside British gymnastics and statutory agencies, we ensure that safeguarding is prioritised and our coaches and staff meet specific requirements to safeguard and protect.

 

Our Welfare Officer is responsible for:

  • Responding to child protection and poor practice concerns.
  • Providing support and advice in the implementation of procedures that safeguard and promote the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk.
  • Assist the club to be more focused in its activities e.g. involving children, young¬† people and adults at risk in decision-making processes.

 

A critical element of this is the designation of a welfare officer who is responsible for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young persons and adults at risk within our club.

 

It is to provide knowledgeable, experienced support that the club has recruited the following volunteer welfare officer : Suzy Scase

If you have any concerns regarding safeguarding, please email welfare@rathgaelgym.org

All matters are dealt with confidentially.
