The RYA's Safeguarding Adults Policy and Guidelines can be downloaded from this page and adapted to suit the requirements of your training centre, club or class association.
Each section is
dated so it's easy to see what has changed since you last reviewed your own
Guidelines document is intended to assist you with drawing up your own
organisation's Policy and Procedures. There is a sample club/centre
policy which covers the essential points, you can then add the sections and
template documents relevant to your organisation.
In the 2020
version, the RYA's Safeguarding Adults Policy Statement has been reviewed and an
updated version approved by the RYA Board, this is reflected in the sample
club/centre policy statement. In addition to updating a number of links
and contact details, we have added some information on Safeguarding Adults
training which is available from the Ann Craft Trust and UK Coaching.
Clubs are advised
to ensure that a safeguarding policy is adopted by the club as a whole,
not just the Training Centre or the Sailability group, and that all members are
aware of it.
