Safeguarding in golf
If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child in golf, or outside the sport, or concerns about the behaviour or practice of a coach or organiser, or anyone else involved in the sport, talk to our governance team on 01526 351824 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have immediate concerns about the welfare of any child or adult, contact the police on 101 or ring the NSPCC 24-hour free helpline on 0808 800 5000.
Concerns might include:
- Bullying of children by their peers or by adults
- Individuals exploiting their position to gain access to children
- Placing unrealistic performance expectations on children
- Lacking awareness of the needs for safeguarding
- Poor planning
We also support club welfare officers with advice, template policies and procedures, and training courses.
