These have been extensively reviewed to ensure a consistent and professional approach in line with UK Athletics standards. Our commitment is encapsulated in the statement: “We will safeguard adults by ensuring that our activities are delivered in a way which keeps all adults safe.”

All individuals involved in our club are expected to familiarize themselves with and adhere to the relevant Codes of Conduct. Separate Codes have been developed for different roles such as Athletes, Coaches, and Officials.
