Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Vulnerable Adults

The British Canoe Union is committed to ensuring that all those taking part in canoeing are able to do so protected and kept safe from harm whilst they are participating in our sport.   This is particularly true in respect of children and vulnerable groups where it is important that they can enjoy our sport in a safe environment protected from any form of poor practice or abuse.

The BCU and our Home Nations have developed a range of policies, guidance and templates to support to all organisations and individuals involved in canoeing to safeguard and protect Children and Vulnerable Groups.   For details please click on your home nation logo below.
