Triathlon should be a safe and positive experience for everybody. All those involved in triathlon have a part to play in safeguarding children. To assist with this, British Triathlon and the Home Nations have implemented a Safeguarding Policy which sets out our belief in and commitment to safeguarding and protecting all children involved in triathlon, safeguarding their welfare and protecting them from all forms of abuse and neglect. This is not just our responsibility but that of everyone involved in triathlon at all levels to ensure that children can enjoy themselves in a safe and non-threatening environment.
If you have concerns for the welfare or safety of a child, young person or adult at risk or some raises a concern with you, report these immediately.
To report a concern contact;
