The Whyte Review, which has been co-commissioned by us and UK Sport, is addressing whether:
- gymnasts’ wellbeing and welfare is (and has been) at the centre of the culture of British Gymnastics, its registered clubs and member coaches and if not, why not
- safeguarding concerns and complaints have been dealt with appropriately in the sport of gymnastics and if not, why not
- gymnasts, or their parents, carers or guardians, have felt unable to raise complaints with appropriate authorities and if so, why.
An independent website for the review has been created and contains all information relating to the review.
The review is being undertaken by Anne Whyte QC, a highly respected and experienced barrister with an extensive record of acting in complex criminal and civil litigation, as well as non-recent and institutional forms of abuse, both physical and sexual. The Terms of Reference are available to read on the Whyte Report website.
While there's no definitive timescale for completion of the report, the Whyte Review is aiming to produce this by the end of August.
