Welsh Triathlon Safeguarding
Welsh Triathlon recognise that everyone who participates in Triathlon is entitled to participate in a safe and fun environment and to be given the chance to experience the feelings of enjoyment, challenge and achievement inherent to the sport. Everyone is entitled to be protected from abuse; our sport has a duty of care in this respect.

Welsh Triathlon is committed to implementing these policies and procedures throughout the sport in Wales taking action to safeguard everyone and to report any concerns about their welfare. It is not the responsibility of Welsh Triathlon to determine whether or not abuse has taken place; this is the domain of professionals; agencies who support this policy and work closely with Triathlon to create the right environment.

It's important to remember that the welfare of a child, young person or adult at risk is paramount, it's not up to you to decide whether or not a child or young person has been abused, but to report concerns appropriately.
If you think a child or young person is in immediate danger or requires medical attention, you should call the emergency services on 999.
You can also ring the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Following reporting the matter to the emergency services or NSPCC you must inform Welsh Triathlon
If you have a non-safeguarding concern or complaint, please review the British Triathlon Complaints Policy to ensure this is addressed in the most effective manner.
