Child Protection and Welfare

Last updated: Tue 19 Apr 2022

Our intent that children and vulnerable adults will find orienteering a safe environment in which to have fun, learn and develop. The Club will do this by adopting and promoting the British Orienteering Policy on Protecting Young and Vulnerable People.

Dartford Orienteering Klubb is affiliated to British Orienteering and is bound by the governing body’s Rules and Regulations for the conduct of the sport. The club commits to the British Orienteering Policy on Equality & Inclusion and will do everything possible to ensure that the sport is open and accessible to all.
