Inclusive Skating provides opportunities for those with mental health challenges and is committed to providing additional mental health support and training.
The unified classified skating class provides those with mental health challenges the opportunities to compete and participate with additional support. This is provided on a case by case basis and is discussed at classification.
Volunteers are encouraged to take the mental health awareness training course available through 1st 4 sport and MIND.
Volunteers and participants should follow the Thriving at Work: implementing good standards in the sport and physical activity sector. These standards are supported by DCMS and Sport England. A guide to their implementation is available.
MIND provide a Mental health Toolkit to assist implementation of appropriate mental health standards and therefore support for sport and activities within Inclusive Skating.
Participants should also refer to the general safeguarding principles and standards for additional guidance where appropriate.
