The RYA Safeguarding Team offers support and guidance to clubs, centres, class associations and any anyone involved in our sport
Our sport should be safe and fun. You have the right to be treated with respect and should show respect to others. If you are worried about the way another young person or an adult is treating you or someone else, speak to your Club or Class Association Welfare Officer or the RYA safeguarding team.
Should you have any concerns with a fellow sailor, coach or staff member in the RYA, do not hesitate to raise you concern with the support network around you. Mental well-being is important for all and the responsibility of everyone involved in the high performance system.
Should you have concerns, direct them confidentially to the RYA Safeguarding Team, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once concern has been raised, the RYA will support you in the next steps and the options moving forward. We will lead on signposting the appropriate support through the NHS or Private Health Care Services.
