Our sport relies on the voluntary contributions of many people, including coaches, team managers, organisers and, of course, the athletes themselves. Training and races happen both on sunny and windy, wet days and there are occasions both when things go well and when things go badly.
We want all contributions to be both positive and valued, and while there are sometimes disappointments, these are often the best times to learn how to do things better.
It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure not only the safety and wellbeing of athletes, but also the welfare of all those who contribute to our sport. To this end, we have adopted a number of policies and codes of conduct, as described below.
If you identify an issue of concern, please contact one of our welfare officers promptly:
The Club’s Welfare Officers are Lizzy Smith and Jim Murphy, who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
If this is not possible, or not satisfactory, the England Athletics policy for reporting welfare issues can be found here.
