Angling Trust Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Policy

This policy aims to ensure that high quality safe sport is available for people with a range of impairments or conditions. In addition, they are delivered in a way that enables maximum enjoyment and participation of adults at risk.

It also provides clear guidance to both external and internal partners including Angling Trust staff and volunteers. This enables them to be clear of expectations around safe and effective practice as well as the management processes when safeguarding concerns arise. 

Many schools and local authorities already have comprehensive policies and procedures in place to cover the welfare and duty of care requirements for adults at risk and young people. This policy is intended to supplement and not replace or reproduce those details.
