The purpose of this policy is to demonstrate the commitment of UK Athletics and the four Home Country Athletics Federations to safeguard adults and to ensure that everyone involved in our sport is aware of:
- the legislation, policy and procedures for safeguarding adults
- their role and responsibility for safeguarding adults
- what to do or who to speak to if they have a concern relating to the welfare or wellbeing of an adult within the organisation.
The policy includes national safeguarding contact details and links to other organisations that provide further information.
