Safeguarding

Everyone who takes part in WOS events is entitled to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment.

We will do our best to ensure that all event organisers, members, volunteers and officials, follow safeguarding advice as set out by their respective governing bodies; e.g athletics events will follow ‘best practice’ as set out by UK Athletics Ltd.  We will ensure that all event organisers pay full attention to their safeguarding responsibilities.

All children are entitled to a duty of care and to be protected from abuse. Abuse can occur anywhere. Wherever children are involved in athletics or live arts, there are adults involved and there is always the possibility that there are some individuals abusing their power over children.  However, it is important to keep a sense of perspective and proportion between any benefits and any risks involved.

Best practise benefits everyone but most importantly, it ensures that children and vulnerable adults who choose to participate in our events have a safe and fun experience.

Our safeguarding policy document is available to download here: Wenlock Olympian Society Safeguarding Policy
