Hampshire Safeguarding Protocol

Hampshire Badminton Association is one of only a few counties to have produced its very own bespoke Safeguarding policy. Very much in-line with Badminton England’s safeguarding policy, Hampshire aims to support clubs and officials in addressing the needs of their own organisations in ensuring everyone linked to the club is safe and kept from harm. Below, you will find a copy of our up-to-date policy and details of Hampshire’s Safeguarding Officer, Cristina Mitchell.

Details of future Safeguarding courses will be posted here.
