Safeguarding

Gymnastics in a Safe Environment (Safeguarding)

Gymnastics is fantastic sport that can have a very powerful and positive influence on young people especially children.  Gymnastics can provide opportunities for enjoyment and achievement and can help those who participate develop valuable qualities and life skills such as confidence, self-esteem, and leadership.

Scottish Gymnastics accept that the welfare and safety of children, young people and protected adults is the responsibility of everyone in the sport, whether paid staff or volunteer.   As an organisation Scottish Gymnastics will endeavor to promote the highest standards of care for all.  We are committed to not only developing policies and procedures but to providing information, education and training opportunities to ensure those working with these groups adopt best practice and that at all times no child, young person or protected adult is placed at risk of harm whilst participating in gymnastics activities.
