RICHMOND AMATEUR REGATTA

Saturday 24th June 2017

Richmond Regatta Welfare Plan

Policy Statement

The Organising Committee of Richmond Amateur Regatta believes that the welfare and wellbeing of all children is paramount. All children, regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, religion or ability, have equal rights to safety and protection. All suspicions, concerns and allegations of harm will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.

A welfare officer / coordinator for the regatta will be appointed annually and will act as the point of contact for any concerns or allegations. Their contact details will be posted in the boating area throughout the duration of the regatta.

Reporting Structure

The Regatta Secretary, with advice from the Welfare Officer, has overall responsibility for decisions and disciplinary procedures.

The first point of contact during the regatta is the regatta Welfare Officer who should be contacted via Regatta Control in Buccleuch Gardens.

If the Welfare Officer deems it necessary to discuss the matter with the Regatta Secretary this can also be undertaken at Regatta Control.

If, after due consideration, it is necessary to contact the Police the Welfare Officer will report the matter to Twickenham Police on 0300 123 1212

After subsequent discussion the Regatta Secretary and the Welfare Officer will decide if the matter shall be reported to the British Rowing CPO.

Medical Provision

Medical provision is provided by suitable qualified outside agencies for the duration of the regatta. The medical staff are given a copy of the Welfare Plan in advance of the regatta.

Security

The security of children is paramount and the regatta briefs all members and helpers regarding the Welfare Plan and asks them to report any inappropriate behaviour to Regatta Control.

The regatta is attended by juniors who usually enter via schools or affiliated rowing clubs and are therefore under the control of school officials or club officials and in some cases parents so the risk is assessed as low.

Personal Contact Details

No personal contact details for children are retained by the regatta

Lost Person Policy

The regatta Lost Person Policy may be found here.

Photography

As the regatta takes place on open public areas (and river) control of photography is not feasible. All members and helpers are briefed to respond to any inappropriate photography and in such circumstances report this to Regatta Control.
