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.
If you have any concerns about the welfare of a child in golf, or outside the sport, or concerns about the behaviour or practise of a coach or organiser, or anyone else involved in the sport, talk to the England Golf 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
