Nicola talks to Katie and Andrea from the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) about safeguarding adults and young people.
The RYA is a national governing body that oversees all sorts of sailing sports and activities. They’re aiming to embed safeguarding at every level of their organisation, from the board to their volunteers.
Katie and Andrea discuss the challenges of designing and implementing safeguarding policies and procedures. They also discuss some of their plans for making safeguarding more relatable for people involved in sailing sports and activities, including their new online “What To Do If You’re Worried” resource.
