Truro Golf Club Safeguard Policy

Safeguarding Policy

Truro Golf Club is committed to ensure 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.

Truro Golf Club is an affiliated member of England Golf and follows the England Golf Safeguarding policies and procedures for Adults and Children and Young People.

Government guidance makes it clear that “safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility”.

Anyone who has had a negative experience of sport at a young age is less likely to become a regular long-term participant. It is important for the future of our club and the sport as a whole that children and Young People have an enjoyable experience.

All club members have a part to play in making that happen.

All adults should contribute to the club meeting its overall duty of care, be aware of our club’s safeguarding policy and know what do if they have concerns about a child or young person.

Truro Golf Club asks our members to familiarise yourself with the Truro Golf Club’s Safeguarding Policies.

In particular look at the following

1. Truro Golf Club Codes of Conduct
Adults should always be aware that age related differences exist and conduct themselves in a manner that both recognises this and prioritises the welfare of Children and Young People and adults at risk

2. Anti-bullying Policy
Truro Golf Club believes that every effort must be made to eradicate bullying in all its forms. The Club will not tolerate bullying in any of its forms during club matches, competitions, coaching or at any other time whilst in the clubhouse or anywhere on the course

3. Transport Policy
The club believes it is primarily the responsibility of parent/carers to transport their child/children to and from events

4. Changing Room Policy
The changing rooms are used by all members and visitors. Wherever possible adults will avoid changing or showering at the same time as children but parents will be made aware that with limited changing room space there will be times when adults and children may need to share the facilities. Where a parent/carer does not consent to their child accessing the changing rooms, it is their responsibility to either supervise the child while in the changing rooms or ensure they do not use them

5. Photography, Videoing and the use of Social Media Policies
Think very carefully before contacting a young person via mobile phone, email or social media. Do not accept children as contacts on social networking sites if you hold a position of trust with Children/Young people. In general stick to group communications, copy the communication to a parent or carer and only communicate about organisational matters.

What to do if you are concerned about a Child or Young Person?

A concern may involve the behaviour of an adult towards a child at the club or something that has happened to the child outside the club. Children and Young people may confide in adults they trust, in a place where they feel comfortable. An allegation may range from verbal bullying, to inappropriate contact on-line, to neglect or emotional abuse, to physical or sexual abuse.
If you are concerned about a child/young person or an adult at risk, it is not your responsibility to investigate further, but it is your responsibility to act on your concerns and share then appropriately.
