In light of the recent issue regarding sexually inappropriate behaviour, UKRDA would like to take the time to reiterate that any form of sexually inappropriate behaviour in any form or physical assault is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. If you have experienced such acts within the UK Roller Derby community or out of the UK we are truly sorry and we are here to listen.
We encourage those who have experienced any of these acts to raise their complaints with the relevant skater leagues or if you feel you can not, raise your complaint with us, we will investigate all complaints fully and take action when it’s required. We do not take allegations of this nature lightly.
Roller Derby should always be maintained as a safe space in all areas. To ensure this we need your voices, leagues or individuals may not know the history of individuals joining their league, by asking for references and sharing experiences we can help ensure that every member of our leagues is vetted appropriately before joining.
