Safeguarding

Gloucester Ski Club is affiliated to Snowsport England (SE) and complies fully with SE’s SnowSafe Policy, a copy of which is available below.  The Club has procedures in place to ensure that all members are treated equitably and cared for whilst involved in the Club’s training activities.

If you or your athlete has a safeguarding related matter you wish to discuss please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Welfare Officer, Kerry Newell, at cwo@gloucesterskiclub.co.uk

The Welfare Officer’s role is to safeguard members so they have a positive and rewarding experience.

Safeguarding Role:

  • 1st point of contact if anyone has safeguarding concerns – parent, carer, athlete, coaches, Committee member

  • Puts in place procedures to deal with concerns

  • As a Committee member, the Welfare Officer attends meetings, and advises the Committee on safeguarding matters

  • Promotes good safeguarding practices throughout the club

  • Ensures all policies and procedures are in place and adhered to, including SE’s SnowSafe Policy

  • Prepares written Codes of Conduct for parents and carers, athletes, coaches, volunteers

Each year Club members are asked to read and sign a Gloucester Ski Club Code of Conduct.  This ensures that all members understand what is expected whilst taking part in Club activities, and helps to ensure everyone has a positive and happy experience at training.  Club Codes of Conduct and safeguarding policies are available to view below.

Committee members are often found at Thursday and Sunday training sessions.  Please feel free to come and say hello.
