Athlete Welfare

Safeguarding and Protecting Athletes

The welfare and protection of all athletes is the first concern of the club. To support this, the club has a child protection policy endorsed by UK Athletics, the sport’s governing body. The club also has an Athlete’s Welfare Officer , who coordinates the club’s actions to respond to any concerns about individual’s welfare and protection.

The club has a firm commitment to fully cooperate with the police, social services, and our governing bodies in any enquiry or investigation.

The club does not condone any action that infringes on a child’s, or vulnerable person’s welfare. Any allegation will be taken seriously and acted on as appropriate.

If you have any concerns regarding the club’s policy and commitment to our athlete’s welfare, please contact us to discuss your concerns. Contact can be made in confidence via the Club Secretary, Lin Neeves, and Lin’s email address is
