The welfare of children and vulnerable adults is everyone’s responsibility, particularly when it comes to protecting them from abuse.  Children and vulnerable adults have a lot to gain from sport.  Their natural sense of fun and spontaneity can blossom in a positive environment created by sports organisations.  It provides an excellent opportunity for them to learn new skills, become more confident and maximise their own unique potential.  This Policy and these Procedures are based on the following principles:


  • The welfare of children and vulnerable adults is the primary concern.
  • All children and vulnerable adults, whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, socio-economic status, religious belief and/or sexual identity have the right to protection from abuse.
  • It is everyone's responsibility to report any concerns about abuse and the responsibility of the Social Work Department and the Police to conduct, where appropriate, a joint investigation.

All incidents of alleged poor practice, misconduct and abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
