Our SafeGolf accreditation demonstrates that Arscott Golf Club has put in place standardised, recognised and robust systems that place the welfare of young and vulnerable people first.
England Golf is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all individuals involved in golf. Although there are many similarities with safeguarding adults and children there are also some distinct differences. For this reason,England Golf has created a separate Safeguarding Adults Policy.
Safeguarding duties apply to an adult who:
- Has needs for care and support (whether or not the local authority is meeting any of those needs) and;
- Is experiencing, or is at risk of, abuse or neglect; and;
- As a result of those care and support needs is unable to protect themselves from either the risk of, or the experience of, abuse or neglect.
Here at Arscott Golf Club we believe golf should be fun and you should feel safe and enjoy your sport. We are committed to providing an enjoyable and safe environment for all our members, particularly the Juniors and vulnerable members.
If something is something worrying you and you need someone to talk to speak to your club welfare officer:
Sian Hinkins Arscott Golf Club Welfare Officer
Whilst everyone is responsible for safeguarding the Club Welfare Officer is the person within a Golf Club with primary responsibility for managing and reporting concerns about children or adults at risk and for putting in to place safeguarding procedures.
