West Cumbria group E.S.K.K Martial Arts & Fitness is leading the charge in safeguarding, having successfully attained the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts “mark”.
The Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts has been created so that parents and carers can make informed decisions about selecting safe and quality tuition for their child. Achieving the Safeguarding Code demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to upholding its duty-of-care to the community and young people and now recognises E.S.K.K Martial Arts & Fitness as a provider that has reached and maintains good safeguarding standards.
Sue Harrison, Stakeholder Marketing at the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts said:
“We are delighted to see E.S.K.K Martial Arts & Fitness successfully attain the Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts."
Chris Denwood, Chief Instructor at E.S.K.K Martial Arts & Fitness, said:
“Safeguarding is an important topic that needs to be seriously addressed, especially by groups who provide services for young people. We’re very happy that our commitment to safeguarding in martial arts has been recognised and we’re proud to display the Safeguarding Code Mark.”
Developed in consultation with Sport England, representatives from martial arts governing bodies, and leading safeguarding experts, the Safeguarding Code is funded by the National Lottery and was launched by the Sports Minister in 2018.
