British Rowing Statement on Safeguarding

British Rowing takes its commitment to safeguarding the welfare of children in our sport very seriously.

Our Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy, developed over many years of working with the CPSU and NSPCC, prioritises the welfare of children.  Together with our Code of Conduct and associated safeguarding guidance documents, it is clear about the responsibilities of clubs, the conduct expected of adults in positions of responsibility for children in rowing, and provides examples of good and poor practice.

British Rowing is assessed annually under the CPSU’s National Advanced Standards for safeguarding and protecting children in sport. We work closely with our clubs, and also with statutory agencies to ensure that safeguarding children is prioritised. Any allegation, suspicion of harm or concern is taken seriously and responded to swiftly, fairly and appropriately, in line with our established processes and policies.
