WADAC take safeguarding and athletes’ welfare very seriously and we are in regular contact with our governing body, UK Athletics, to ensure our policies and procedures are up to date.

Our Coaches with access to children under 18 or vulnerable adults have Coach Licences which are only issued following a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check formerly known as a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.

We are also embarking on a programme of encouraging our parent helpers and team managers to complete a volunteer application form.

If you have any issues regarding safeguarding, please contact the Club’s Welfare Officer, Sheryl Reid, via
