Welfare Statement

Work in progress

Ladies Seas the Day is fully committed to safeguarding the well-being of its participants. All participants, coaches and leaders should show respect and understanding for the rights, safety and welfare of others, and conduct themselves in a way that reflects the principles of the sport.

We believe that taking part in paddlesport should be a positive and enjoyable part of people’s lives and to achieve this we have the following aims:

  1. Coaches and helpers should follow the British Canoeing Code of Ethics.
  2. All coaches, helpers and officials working with vulnerable adults should read and adhere to the British Canoeing ‘Child and Vulnerable Groups Protection Policy’. The management committee will follow the guidance of the policy in the event of any concerns or allegations.
  3. All participants, coaches and leaders are made aware of the events Code of Conduct and policies.
  4. The management committee will obtain written medical details of all participants which will be made known to coaches/leaders, where deemed appropriate and/or necessary.
  5. The event will identify a person whose role it is to deal with any issues concerning Safeguarding and Child Protection (Event Welfare Officer) and notify this person to all members. Anyone with concerns with respect to the welfare should contact that person. If that person is unavailable, they can contact the British Canoeing Safeguarding Officer.
