Junior Policies, Rules & Important Documents

Introduction

Whilst children and young people are participating in golf activities in our care, The Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs has a responsibility to ensure their safety and wellbeing. The Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs recognises the policies of the National Governing Body, as set in out in the England Golf Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy and Procedures”.

The policy and supporting procedures set out a framework to fulfil our commitment to good practice and the protection of children in our care.

Key principles

  • The welfare of children is paramount.
  • A child is defined by law in England and Wales as a person under the age of 18 years.
  • All children, regardless of their Age, Race, Religion or Belief, Disability, Gender identity or Sexual Orientation, have the right to protection from abuse.
  • All concerns and allegations of abuse and poor practice will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • All children have the right to be safe.
  • All children have the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
  • The Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs will work with children, their parents/carers and external organisations to safeguard the welfare of children participating in golf.
  • We recognise the authority of the statutory agencies and are committed to complying with Local Safeguarding Children Board Guidelines (LSCB), Working Together under the Children Act 2004, and any legislation and statutory guidance that supersedes these.
  • The Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs is committed to working in partnership with other key UK Golf bodies to continually improve and promote safeguarding initiatives across the sport.
  • The Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs owes a legal duty of care to children on their premises or engaged in their activities. That duty is to take reasonable care to ensure their reasonable safety and the duty is higher than it would be for adults.

Objectives

The Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs aims to:

  • Provide a safe environment for children and young people participating in golfing activities and try to ensure that they enjoy the experience.
  • Ensure robust systems are in place to manage any concerns or allegations.
  • Support adults (staff, volunteers, PGA Professionals, coaches, members and visitors) to understand their roles and responsibilities with regard to their duty of care and protection of children.
  • Provide appropriate training, support and resources for staff, volunteers & coaches to make informed and confident responses to specific safeguarding issues and fulfill their role effectively.
  • Ensure that children and their parents/carers are informed and consulted and, where appropriate, fully involved in decisions that affect them.
  • Reassure parents and carers that all children and young people will receive the best care possible whilst participating in county activities and communicate Policy and Procedure to them through website/letter/consents.

 

Responsibilities and implementation

The Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs will seek to promote the principles of safeguarding children by:

  • Review their policy and procedures every three years or whenever there is a major change in legislation. Guidance from England Golf will be sought as part of the review process.
  • Conducting a risk assessment of county activities with regard to safeguarding and taking appropriate action to address the identified issues within suitable timescales.
  • Using appropriate recruitment procedures to assess the suitability of volunteers and staff working with children and young people in line with guidance from England Golf.
  • Following National Governing Body (NGB) procedures to report concerns and allegations about the behaviour of adults and ensuring that all staff, volunteers, parents and children are aware of these procedures.
  • Directing staff, volunteers & coaches to appropriate safeguarding training and learning opportunities, where this is appropriate to their role.

County Welfare Officer: Dee Gladden

I am pleased to serve as the County Welfare Officer using my previous experience as a Police Officer having served with Metropolitan Police Service in London and a paramedic with the London Ambulance service. During the latter years I became involved in the Youth and Community Section delivering schools involvement programmes on the law, drugs, and personal safety.

I have provided programmes and training both for police officers and members of the community on first aid, personal safety, and Crime Prevention information and I was also responsible for presenting the R.I.D.E. drugs education programme in schools to children aged from 9 to 18yrs.

The Kingston Police Cadet Unit, which is a youth programme for ages 15-19, was launched by me and a colleague.  I was responsible for training the cadets and successfully guided them through the Duke of Edinburgh programme for bronze and silver awards.

I currently teach all ages to achieve various health and safety qualifications Safety Compliance, Manual Handling, Fire Safety and First aid. I also serve as a First Responder for the East Midlands Ambulance Service which is a voluntary role.

I have completed a BTEC in special needs which I have found valuable when supporting less academically able individuals but also adults returning to learning.

I am a keen golfer and have been involved with the Nottinghamshire Nippers and the Golf sixes. My family including my grandson are keen golfers.

I look forward to providing support when required.

My role as the CWO is to take the lead in the county on welfare and protection issues and ensure the appropriate action is taken when there is a potential/alleged abuse, bullying or poor practice. It is not my role to investigate fully any allegations made. I have undertaken Child Protection training provided by national golfing bodies and others. Child protection concerns will be reported to the police/Social Services Department as appropriate.

If the England Golf Lead Safeguarding Officer is not available and a delay cannot be justified then seek advice from the local County Council Safeguarding Adults Team or County Council Social Care-Emergency Duty Team.
