Safeguarding for Parents


Information for parents or carers

As a parent or carer you play an essential part in encouraging and supporting your child’s participation in paddlesports. Whether they are budding champions, amateur adventurers or future leaders, your child deserves to be supported in a happy and safe environment.

It is understandable that you want reassurance that the sport they are involved in has their best interest and welfare at heart.

Talk to your club or centre

A well run paddlesports club or centre should welcome questions about its activities, policies and procedures and should be more than happy to share that information. Sometimes the information you want can be found on its website, but if it isn’t, you should be able to contact someone at the club or centre for further information.
