Sexual misconduct statistics

Helen Spooner made this Freedom of Information request to UK Athletics
This authority is not subject to FOI law, so is not legally obliged to respond (details).
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

We're waiting for Helen Spooner to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear UK Athletics,
 
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). Please provide any information that you hold pertaining to the following:
 
1. Since 2000, how many allegations of sexual misconduct have been made against coaches in UK Athletics? 

2. Since 2000, how many coaches have been banned - for life or temporarily - for sexual misconduct? 
 
3. Since 2000, how many of the cases of sexual misconduct have been referred to the police? 
 
4. How many coaches, since having been temporarily banned, have returned to coaching under UKA? 
 
5. How many of these coaches have gone on to reoffend within the sport?
 
6. How many coaches that have been banned for sexual misconduct have successfully overturned their ban and have returned to the sport? 
 
7. Does UK Athletics have an obligation to the future employers of banned coaches to disclose the reason for their ban? On how many occasions has UKA warned future employers about the coaches ban? 

In our requests above ‘sexual misconduct’ should be given a wide definition and taken to include sexual assault and any misconduct or inappropriate behaviour of a sexual nature.

Thank you for your assistance and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
 
Yours faithfully,
 
Helen Spooner
