RYA strengthens safeguarding support
The RYA Board has recognised the importance of safeguarding children and vulnerable adults participating in sailing and boating by allocating resources to the appointment of a Safeguarding Officer. The new post will support the Safeguarding and Equality Manager in developing and communicating safeguarding information, resources and training, enabling us to provide a more proactive and responsive service to affiliated clubs and organisations.
In addition we will be recruiting a voluntary Chair of our Safeguarding Steering Group to bring an independent viewpoint and professional safeguarding experience to our policy development and case management processes.
