Policies and Procedures

  • In line with Sports Leaders UK’s self-assessment we have conducted a review of our policies and procedures.  The review has resulted in some changes to the policies and procedures to help clarity aspects of these policies for Centres.  Through this process we have also separated out the Whistleblowing policy from the Complaints policy to improve the communication of how the policy and procedure should be implemented. 
  • An additional policy for Centres that have had Centre approval withdrawn following investigation has also been created to help this transition following a sanction being imposed.
  • The changes that have been made are summarised on the link here.  All new policies and procedures can be accessed through the link here.
