Welfare & Safeguarding

"It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure the welfare of all those who participate in multi-sport."

WVTri’s principle aim is to create an environment that is safe and inclusive for all members participating in multi-sports in order for them to achieve their potential in swimming, cycling, running, coaching, officiating or supporting those who do.

WVTri has adopted and endorses the principles of British Triathlon Welfare Policies and Procedures. We take welfare matters very seriously and work with British Triathlon and other organisations to ensure that we have the right systems in place to deal with matters relating to the welfare of our members and those around us.

WVTri Life offers members who, through unexpected life events, are unable to make the financial commitment to attend the coached training sessions, and would otherwise loose the opportunity to continue with their training within WVTri.  There is also provision for entering the club championships as well.  

Should you wish to be considered for WVTri Life, or know of someone within the club who could benefit, please do speak to our Head Coach, Welfare Officer or any member of the committee/coaching team.  Any nominations received will remain confidential unless the athlete specifies otherwise.
