WELFARE AND SAFEGUARDING
As a Club we are committed to the wellbeing and safety of our members and volunteers and this is reflected in our Constitution, the appointment of Club Welfare Officers and the inclusion of a Safeguarding and Welfare section on our Committee Meeting agenda.
All members of our Club have a duty of care to one another, and we all adhere to the EA Codes of Conduct. As an England Athletics affiliated club, we adopt the following policies:
• England Athletics Safeguarding Children Policy and Procedures
• England Athletics Safeguarding Adults Policy and Guidance Procedures
These policies and the Codes of Conduct for Athletes, Volunteers and Coaches can be found on the England Athletics website.
Our aim is to create a welcoming and supportive environment in which everyone can enjoy being part of the Club. We want members to know that there is a safe space to talk to us if they have any concerns about their own welfare. We also want to ensure that members feel confident about how to raise any concerns they may have about the welfare of another member.
Please contact the Club's Welfare Officers if you have concerns. They are:
Hi, I joined Club in Spring 2018 after completing the Zero to 3 running course. I really enjoy being part of the FRR community and running the local races. I can be found at the Tuesday runs, some of the coached sessions on a Thursday or at a Saturday Social. I have a background in Social Work and have worked in adult mental health in London and Sheffield. Since moving to Cornwall, I have moved into Early Years and am currently Deputy Manager of a local Preschool. I have completed the required Welfare Officer and Safeguarding training with England Athletics, and you can contact me if you have concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org
If your safeguarding concern is urgent, please contact the police by dialing 999 or 101 or local Social Services.
Advice and support about safeguarding concerns can also be obtained by contacting email@example.com
