Club Statement of Intent

Trafford Aikido believe all should enjoy Aikido in a safe and enjoyable setting particularly those for whom Safeguarding exists.   This approach helps us to achieve :-

  • Healthy personal development.
  • Positive and balanced relationships. based on mutual trust, fairness, respect and equality.
  • An environment:-
    • which makes Aikido fun and enjoyable.
    • where if abuse or bullying occurs they feel comfortable and safe to disclose.
    • where concerns over welfare are acted on and not ignored.
    • where no one is forced to do something they don't wish to in an Aikido setting.
  • That adults working with these groups understand their legal and moral responsibility and fulfil them.
  • Adults in the Club should not be placed in situations where allegations of abuse could be made.
  • Coaches are qualified and safeguard trained.
