Whilst Skate Central strives to create a safe skating environment for all ages and skating abilities, occasionally skaters lose their balance, fall over and occasionally sustain an injury. Other than a life or death scenario, our staff will not provide first aid to members of the public and our policy is to rely upon the emergency services to provide first cover to our premises. Adults participating in roller skating activities therefore accept our policy in respect of first aid. The parents of unaccompanied children accept this procedure on behalf of their children. Full details of our procedures in respect of how we deal with an injured skater are available upon request.
