Disability Shooting Great Britain (DSGB) is fully committed to the duty of care to safeguard children and adults and to promote the welfare of all our stakeholders from being unlawfully discriminated against for any reason. DSGB is also fully committed to promote inclusion for all the Protected Characteristics.
DSGB is committed to:
- Making the welfare of children paramount.
- Enabling everyone whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious belief and/or sexual identity to participate in DSGB organised activities in an inclusive and safe environment
- Taking all reasonable steps to protect children and adults from harm, discrimination and degrading treatment and to respect their rights, wishes and feelings
- Taking seriously all concerns and allegations of poor practice or abuse and responding swiftly and appropriately to them in accordance with current policies and procedures
- Ensuring that all DSGB employees and consultants who work with children and vulnerable adults are appropriate for their role and responsibilities and are provided with relevant training
- Recognising that children, adults and families from minority group backgrounds may face additional barriers to accessing help and reporting concerns in respect of safeguarding issues
Safeguarding training is available for all roles.
