Safeguarding and Welfare
Everyone in Athletics has a part to play in safeguarding children and adults at risk, Welsh Athletics aims to create an environment where everyone involved in athletics feels safe and secure to enable them to achieve their potential – to run, jump and throw, to coach, officiate or to support those who do.
