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.

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.
