Safeguarding

At Sleaford Maltsters Archery club, we are committed to safeguarding, ensuring everyone can enjoy archery activities in a safe, happy and welcoming environment.

Our policies provide guidance on how our club aim to protect children and young or vulnerable adults by:

  • Prioritising the welfare of everyone that accesses our club
  • Creating and maintaining the ‘safest possible’ environment for everyone
  • Taking all reasonable steps to promote safe practices and protection from harm, abuse or exploitation
  • Promoting a culture which embraces diversity and respects everyone’s rights

We all have a responsibility to act if we are in any way concerned for another’s well-being. This should be done even if an incident occurs outside of Sleaford Maltsters environment. More importantly, never dismiss what a child, young or vulnerable adult tells you as lies or exaggeration.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
