Safeguarding and Compliance
British Gymnastics Commitment to Safeguarding
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 fulfil their potential.
In order to help ensure a safe environment, we provide information and training opportunities to enable those working with children in gymnastics to respond appropriately if they are worried a child may be at risk or suffering abuse.
Safe Sport Surveys.
As part of our continuing commitment to ensure the safeguarding and well-being of all our members within a Safe Sport, the following safeguarding surveys have been specifically designed to help establish the understanding that our clubs, coaches, official, parents and gymnasts have of safeguarding and how embedded policies and procedures are throughout our Sport.
You assistance in sparing a few minutes to complete the surveys and share them with all your coaches/officials, parents and gymnasts, would be greatly appreciated and will enhance our continuing review of the service provided.
All parents are requested to assist their children in completing the children’s survey.
Simply follow the links below. If you wish to remain anonymous then that is perfectly acceptable. All comments and feedback are welcomed
Information for Parents
Parents play a vital role in their children’s sport. Positive support from parents both physically and emotionally can make such a difference to a child’s enjoyment and progress as well as teaching them life lessons in terms of being a positive role model.
Keeping your child safe
We have designed our new leaflet ‘Keeping your child safe’ a guide to parents, which provides useful information to help parents be confident that their child can have fun in a safe environment and how they can help.
The leaflet will be included in all new membership packs. Additional copies will be available during future Safeguarding events and available on request through the Safeguarding & Compliance team or your local Regional Welfare Officer.
