Cornwall Ladies County Golf Association hits the mark with national golf accreditation for safeguarding
Cornwall Ladies County Golf Association, which is backing the drive to grow the game, has achieved the SafeGolf accreditation from England Golf demonstrating its commitment to safeguarding children and young people, as well as adults in risk in the sport of golf.
The CLCGA runs numerous single and team events throughout the year catering to all levels of golfing ability for the members of 27 clubs in Cornwall. We have a well-established and strong junior coaching partnership with the Cornwall Golf Union.
As CLCGA Secretary I would like to thank Bridget Moody our welfare officer and the England Golf support team, Brad Bodinnar and Ben Martin for their hard work in achieving our SafeGolf accreditation.
The award was presented to Cornwall Ladies County Golf Association by Jeremy Tomlinson, England Golf’s Chief Executive. “I’m delighted that Cornwall Ladies County Golf Association has achieved SafeGolf and that its efforts to grow the game and safeguard it’s participants can be nationally recognised.”
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 & 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 and counties to ensure everyone provides 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.
