Child Welfare at AFD
Everyone who takes part in athletics is entitled to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment.
Best practice in athletics benefits everyone- the sport’s governing bodies, coaches and officials, teachers, parents, carers and athletes. Most importantly, it ensures that children who choose to participate in athletics have a safe and fun experience.
All children are entitled to a duty of care and to be protected from abuse. Abuse can occur anywhere.
Aldershot, Farnham and District Athletic Club (AFD AC) is committed to ensuring that anyone that comes into contact with children at the club understands and accepts their responsibilities to safeguard children from harm and abuse.
Please refer to the Codes of Conduct to understand your responsibilities in the safeguarding of children.
