CHILD PROTECTION AND WELFARE
In accordance with British Rowing’s ‘Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy’, the organising committee of the Weybridge Silver Sculls believes that the welfare and wellbeing of all children is paramount. All children, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion or ability, have equal rights to safety and protection. All suspicions, concerns and allegations of harm will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
A Welfare Officer for the competition will be appointed annually and will act as the point of contact for any concerns or allegations. Their contact number will be posted in the boating areas of Cowey Sale, Walton Rowing Club and Elmbridge Canoe Club throughout the duration of the competition.
