Safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk
The Lea Rowing Club is committed to ensuring that all members, including children, young people and vulnerable adults can participate in an environment which is safe and enjoyable.
The club endorses British Rowing’s Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Adults at Risk Policies. Their policy documents can be accessed the British Rowing website Safeguarding page.
As part of our commitment we ensure that:
The club has a designated Club Welfare Officer and Deputy Club Welfare Officer.
All coaches, chaperones and others working with our Junior and Schools programmes have an enhanced DBS check that is regularly updated.
All coaches have undertaken British Rowing approved safeguarding training as part of the accreditation and this is updated every three years.
All coaches, chaperones and others working with our Junior and Schools programmes are offered annual safeguarding refresher training.
We will not share your personal information or photographs without your/your parents’ permission.
