Child and Vulnerable Adult Safeguarding Policy Statement

The following is the introductory extract from SESCA's Safeguarding Policy document:

"It is the policy of St Edmundsbury Sailing & Canoeing Association (SESCA) to safeguard children and vulnerable adults from physical, sexual, psychological or financial harm or neglect.  The Club will take all reasonable steps to ensure that, through appropriate procedures and training, children and vulnerable adults participating in SESCA activities do so in a safe environment.  We recognise that all participants - irrespective of sex, age, disability, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, gender reassignment or social status - have a right to protection from discrimination and abuse.


This policy relates to all members/volunteers who work with children and vulnerable adults in the course of their SESCA duties/activities, including occasional guests invited to participate in special events."
