Safeguarding Policies

Ryde Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and adults at risk. The club is committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance and complies with best practice and LTA  and Croquet Association requirements. The club’s full safeguarding policy can be found below and a printed hard copy is available in the policy folder in the clubhouse.

The club’s safeguarding policy recognises that the welfare and interests of children and adults at risk are paramount in all circumstances. It aims to ensure that regardless of age, ability or disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation, socio-economic background, everyone has a positive and enjoyable experience in a safe and inclusive environment at RLTCC and is protected from abuse.
