Here at Leek Golf Club we are committed in ensuring that the sport of golf is one within which children and young people involved can thrive and flourish in a safe environment and that all children, young people and adults at risk have a fun, safe and positive experience when playing golf.
We are an affiliated member of England Golf and follow the England Golf Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy and Procedures.
You might be thinking “What has safeguarding got to do with me?” Government guidance makes it clear that ‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility’.
Anyone who has a negative experience of sport at a young age is less likely to become a regular long-term participant. It’s important for the future of our club and the sport as a whole that children and young people have an enjoyable experience.
All our Club Members and visitors have a part to play in making that happen.
All adults should contribute to us meeting our overall duty of care, be aware of our Club’s safeguarding policy, and know what to do if they are concerned about a young person.
We hope you all have a fun, safe and positive experience when playing golf at Leek.
