Working together to keep people safe

Take part in our safeguarding poster competition for a chance to win a Milano gift voucher!

As part of National Safeguarding Week, we are launching a poster design competition, open to all Welsh Gymnastics members, and is your chance to help us to support gymnasts to speak up when they feel things aren’t right.

The competition is split into two categories. We are inviting poster designs aimed at under 11s as well as a poster design aimed at over 11s.

We have also joined forces with Milano Pro Sport to offer a £50 voucher to winning design in each category.

The closing date for entries is Tuesday, 1st December.

The theme for the posters is ‘speaking up’
• How can we encourage gymnasts to speak up?
• Speaking up – what does that mean to you and how can we empower individuals to speak up and get help?
• What can gymnasts/leaders /coaches do if they have any worries?
• Who can the gymnasts/leaders/coaches/parents tell about the worries that they have?

The winning posters will be selected by a panel that will be made up of Welsh Gymnastics CEO Michelle Fulford, Wales CPSU representative Laura Whapham and independent safeguarding consultant Ieuan Watkins.

The winning entries will be used by Welsh Gymnastics to promote safeguarding and speaking up and may be shared across websites, social media and training events.

• The two winning entries will receive a £50 Milano voucher
• Two additional runners-up in each category will receive Welsh Gymnastics items
