Welfare & Safeguarding
Sport can and does have a very powerful and positive influence on people - especially children, young people and protected adults. Not only can sport provide opportunities for enjoyment and achievement, it can also help those who participate to develop valuable qualities and skills such as self-esteem, leadership and teamwork. These positive effects can only take place if sport is in the right hands i.e. in the hands of those who place the welfare of all children and young people first and adopt practices that support, protect and empower them.
Inverness Gymnastics Club is committed to delivering all sessions, programmes and events in a safe and positive environment. By ensuring we adhere to our own, and to Scottish Gymnastics policies on safeguarding and welfare, we work in a manner that is in the best interest of the children, coaches, volunteers and staff within our club.
To ensure the running of our club meets the expected standards of our members and their families, IGC works closely with Scottish Gymnastics to undertake the relevant training, and to adhere to all legislation in this area.
