Reporting Concerns

Protecting Gymnasts

Sometimes we see or hear something that makes us a bit uneasy and we're not sure what to do about it. Do we keep quiet and hope someone else will complain, or do we tell the people who have the experience to investigate? 

If you have a concern, or see something that concerns you, we ask that you please speak up. 

You can talk through any concerns you may have by getting in touch with a member of the Scottish Gymnastics safeguarding team. You can email safegym@scottishgymnastics.org or call them - you can find their contact details on our staff page. You can also learn the skills to help with one of our safeguarding courses. You can view more infomation about the available courses below.
