Safeguarding and protection policies
Roehampton Club strives to ensure that all children, young people and adults at risk are safeguarded from any types of abuse, verbal or physical, and have an enjoyable experience at the Club. Everyone has a shared responsibility to support this by promoting the welfare of all children, young people and adults at risk. Members should contact a member of our Welfare Team should they have any concerns.

In summer 2022, Roehampton Club was awarded the SafeGolf national golf accreditation for safeguarding.
SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to promoting a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf.
The SafeGolf partnership consists of members from the golfing bodies across Great Britain and Ireland and has been established to help golf respond to the issue of child protection in sport. Its mission is to safeguard the welfare of children and young people, as well as adults at risk, in the sport of golf.
SafeGolf is firstly, a website – www.safegolf.org – through which anyone with a concern about the welfare of a player, or the behaviour or practice of a coach, volunteer, organiser, parent or a player, can contact the lead safeguarding officer at their national governing body.
Secondly, it is the safeguarding standard England Golf will promote to all their affiliated clubs to ensure all clubs provide a safe and positive experience to children and young people whilst playing golf. The PGA are also using the standards to apply to all their PGA professional Coaches.
