Welfare Information

At Cumbernauld AAC we adhere to all Scottish Athletics polices, such as Health and Safety, Child Protection and Codes of Conduct.

All our coaches, parent volunteers and any other adults working with the club will have completed a Protecting Vulnerable Groups check, to ensure the highest standards of safety for your child.  Details of the PVG scheme can be found here.

We have two welfares officers, Catriona Pettigrew-Smith and Frankie Reilly. The role of a Welfare Officer is to ensure that child protection policies are in place and adhered to, to maintain and oversee the complaints procedure and to be familiar with current child protection legislation.
