Child Protection

EADA aims to ensure that all young persons’ welfare and enjoyment, pertaining to all aspects of Dancesport, are of an exemplary standard. To this end EADA, based upon Sport England’s recommendations, introduced a Child Protection Policy. In keeping with its own responsibility as the National Governing Body of Amateur Dancesport, EADA recognises the importance of ensuring every child’s safety and protection from any form of abuse.
