Adults at Risk
As the National Governing Body for Angling, the Angling Trust is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of all Adults at Risk.
We believe that everyone has the right to be treated with respect and dignity. Everyone deserves to be safe.
A policy is only any use if it is implemented on the ground.
To fulfil our commitment to safeguarding adults at risk it is paramount that everyone involved in angling does their bit to implement the policy and its actions proactively. If it just sits on the shelf, then it won’t protect people properly.
All of us can remember how happy it made us to learn how to fish. By following the sensible steps in our policy, you can help ensure that you will have reduced the risk of anyone being harmed or made to feel miserable or afraid because of getting involved in fishing.
To ensure we are constantly reacting to and keeping our practices up to date we proactively work with the Ann Craft Trust and Sport England, and are audited annually on our practice.
Please help us to ensure that angling is a safe and enjoyable activity that everyone can enjoy by implementing our policies which you can download using the links provided below. If you’ve got any questions about these, please contact me.
