Safeguarding Introduction

Introduction

Wales Squash & Racketballis doing everything it can to make sure there is no room in our sport for those who seek to abuse children, young people and vulnerable adults.

All children and young people, regardless of age, any disability they may have, gender, racial origin, religous belief and sexual identity have a right to protection from abuse. This guide is part of our efforts but everyone involved in our sport has a part to play.

Abuse can occur anywhere; at school, at home, travelling, in the park, both on and off court. Sadly there are people who will seek to be where there are children and young people simply in order to abuse them.

Wales Squash & Racketball believes that the welfare of children and young people is everyone's responsibility, particulary when it comes to protecting them from abuse.

Everyone involved in our sport has a responsibilty to make sure that children and young people are safeguarded and protected from any kind of abuse; from officials, volunteers, parents/carers, coaches, other family members, friends and children themselves. We believe that all of us have a part to play.

Wales Squash & Racketball will support anyone who, in good faith, reports any concerns that a child or young person is at risk or may actually be being abused. Equally we adhere to the principle that the accused individual has the right to be presumed innocent until guilt is proven.

It may be necessary in the interests of potential victims, and indeed our sport itself, to suspend an official or ban someone from Wales Squash & Racketball activities on a temporary basis. That suspension or ban should not, however, be equated with guilt.
