Archery GB has organised a series of webinars to help volunteers get to grips with our new Lower-Level Concerns Policy and the Disciplinary Policy which has been reviewed and updated.
Everyone involved in archery is responsible for ensuring that their behaviour meets the requirements of the Archery GB Code of Conduct to promote its values:
Archery GB promotes a culture where it is safe and acceptable for anyone to raise a complaint or concern including those of poor practice, bullying or harassment, abuse, grooming, neglect, or any other form of misconduct. No person should be victimised for raising concerns or making a complaint.
Any concern – no matter how small – about a person’s behaviour can be addressed where a person has acted in a way that is:
To help you understand more about lower-level concerns, we have published a Lower-Level Concerns Policy as well as reviewing and updating our Disciplinary Policy and Procedures. Both can be downloaded from the Resources section of our Disciplinary Policies and Appeal Procedures page.
It is the personal responsibility of everyone involved in archery to familiarise themselves with the requirements of these policies, including what conduct constitutes a breach of the policy.
To help volunteers understand both documents, we will be holding webinars throughout September to discuss both policies and their application in practice.
The sessions are designed for Club Chair and Committee Members, County and Regional Chairs and Committees, and, Welfare and Safeguarding Officers. The sessions will be led by Justine Hosking, the new Independent Chair for the Case Management Panel.
The sessions will run from 6pm until 7:15pm and are free to enter via the members' portal.
