About Safeguarding

In order to ensure a safe environment Scottish Gymnastics is committed to not only developing policies and procedures but to providing help, guidance, education and training opportunities for clubs.

Clubs have a duty of care not only to the children and young people in their club but also to the coaches, helpers and officials working within the club.  By adhering to the policies and procedures set by SG and adopting best practice, the risk of harm should be reduced and allow all those participating in gymnastics to enjoy a safe, fun and positive experience. Safeguarding training organised through SG is mandatory for all those working with children, young people and protected adults regardless of whether in a paid or voluntary capacity.
