Raising Concerns

What should I do if I have a concern about a child?

Always remember the welfare of the child is of paramount concern.  It is not up to you to decide whether or not a child has been abused, but it is your responsibility to report any concerns appropriately.

If you have any concerns about a child, you must pass your concerns on.  SMK have a Club Welfare Officer – you can speak to them.  If you cannot get hold of your Club Welfare Officer or SMK Chair, you can speak to the Snowsport England Safeguarding Lead, or a deputy (details below). 

If you think a child is in immediate danger, call the Police.
