Keeping Children Safe

At Berkshire Girls Golf we want to ensure that you have a fun, safe and positive experience when you play golf so we have implemented the policies and procedures recommended by Safeguarding Children in Golf (SCiG).

SCiG is a partnership of the key governing bodies and organisations in golf which have come together to ensure that golf provides a safe environment for children by making every reasonable effort to have a consistent message and workable guidance to anyone working with children and vulnerable adults.

In February 2018, the Berkshire County Ladies Golf Association (BCLGA) Executive Committee formally endorsed the county Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy Statement [PDF format]. This is reviewed on a regular basis.

We ensure that volunteer event overseers and our coaches receive Child Protection training and where relevant are DBS checked. For both adults and children needing advice and for reporting any concerns, please contact one of the following people:
