Safeguarding in Golf
Everyone should be able to enjoy golf in a safe environment. We all have a responsibility to protect and safeguard children and adults at risk.
Is something worrying you? Do you need someone to talk to? Speak to your club welfare officer.
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
