British Gymnastics today announced a specialist Independent Complaints Process (ICP) to handle existing individual complaints that were made to the British Athletes Commission (BAC) from July 6.
The process will review complaints made via the BAC and NSPCC up until 9 October, and you can read full details from British Gymnastics here.
The BAC has welcomed this development, with the organisation’s Chair, Vicki Aggar, saying:
“The BAC has worked hard on behalf of every individual who has contacted us to ensure that their concerns are acknowledged and that they are supported appropriately. This work has included ensuring that there is an independent process for any complaints to be dealt with.
“Today’s announcement by British Gymnastics of an independent complaints process for those individuals being supported by the BAC is a welcome step forward and the BAC will now support individuals who chose to submit a complaint through this process.”
