STAGING Governance & Welfare January updates - British Rowing

Governance & Welfare January updates

Where to go and what we have available for you!


Wishing you all a happy new year! We thought it would be useful to start the year with a reminder of the tools and resources available to you in all areas of welfare and governance.




Webpage: British Rowing Safeguarding 

On our webpage is information about the Introduction to Safeguarding e-learning, the Safeguarding Handbooks and posters and leaflets.

If I have a concern? In the first instance raise concerns with your Club Welfare Officer, or contact the Police or Local Authority if someone is at immediate risk of harm. Otherwise you can also Report a Concern to British Rowing.

Clean Sport


Webpage: British Rowing Clean Sport 

On this webpage is our Anti-Doping Policy, all the information you need to understand your rights and responsibilities, and a wealth of information to support you or your rowers in participating in rowing clean. There is also information about our iRowClean online modules which anyone can undertake.

If I have a concern? In any instance that you believe someone may be falling foul of our anti-doping rules, please share this information via UK Anti-Doping’s Protect Your Sport so it can be looked at independently.



Webpages: Policies and Guidance and Disciplinary and Grievance

On our webpages you can find all our policies and guidance documents. The Disciplinary and Grievance page will go through the procedures to follow whenever someone has a grievance.

If I have a concern? In the first instance of a grievance your club’s procedures should be followed, more information about this and to raise a grievance can be found here: Grievance Form
