Adults at Risk

British Rowing has realised the need for an individual policy for Adults at Risk, in line with the considerations of the Disability Discrimination Act, in order to promote equal opportunities and provide a clearer framework for those who suffer from physical, mental health and learning disabilities.

Ideally, good practice suggests a partnership model of working involving the British Rowing coach, teacher or club officer, the Adult at Risk and their carer. In these circumstances, it is important that the adult is at the centre of the decision-making process.

The Safeguarding Adults at Risk Policy is available as a pdf. download from our Policies and Guidance page under the Welfare drop-down box.
