RDA Commitment

RDA UK is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of everyone who engage with the Charity. As part of our commitment, we believe children and adults are entitled to feel safe and protected from any form of harm, abuse, neglect and exploitation, and to take part in activity in a safe, positive and enjoyable environment.

In pursuit of this, we are committed to ensuring that:

  • A person-centred approach is taken in all interactions.
  • Every individual, irrespective of age, gender, disability, race, ethnicity, nationality, religious affiliation, size or sexual orientation, is entitled to be protected against harm.
  • All allegations, concerns and suspicions of harm will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • Collaboratively, everyone across the organisation will strive to promote the welfare, safety and health of participants taking part.


Our Policies


Safeguarding is Everyone’s Responsibility

We all play our part in creating a safe and supportive environment. By being aware, reporting concerns, and supporting those at risk, we contribute to a culture of safety and respect. Whether its recognising signs of abuse, adhering to policies and procedures, or offering a listening ear to someone in distress, our collective actions make a significant difference.

Remember, safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, and it starts with you.
