Safeguarding

The BAC is committed to protecting the welfare and interests of its members regardless of their age, gender, religion, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or social-economic background.

We will always prioritise the safety and well-being of our members and will work in the system to promote a culture ensuring athletes are listened to and respected as individuals.

 

All BAC employees have undertaken training on safeguarding. The organisation regularly reviews the training needs of staff and directors.

Please find below the BAC’s information on Safeguarding; which contains our procedures.
