Welfare and Safeguarding.
Bolton Tri Club has adopted, and follows British Triathlon’s Welfare and Safeguarding Policies
“It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure the welfare of all those who participate in multi-sport.”
Our aim is to create an environment that is safe, encouraging and inclusive for all members participating in multi-sports whether that’s swimming, running, coaching, officiating or supporting those who do.
Our club Welfare and Safeguarding Officer is Lisa Fry. Lisa role is to advise the club committee on good practice and to be available to all club members to discuss queries or concerns regarding welfare, poor practice or safeguarding. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
All our coaches are required to complete the UK Coaching Safeguarding and Protecting Children course. Those who coach under 18s on a regular basis are also required to undertake a DBS check
If you do have concerns for the welfare or safety of a child, young person or adult at risk or some raises a concern with you, please report these immediately, either by contacting Lisa at email@example.com or British Triathlon at firstname.lastname@example.org
The British Triathlon Lead Safeguarding Officer can also be contacted on 07384 214 726
We pride ourselves on being a friendly club but we do recognise that bullying can happen and it can spoil the enjoyment of sport and damage the confidence of children and adults. If you or your child experience bullying and someone is doing or saying things that make you feel uncomfortable or frightened please speak to a person who is involved in running the session. We want to know so we can do something about it. You can also contact our Welfare officer
