Child Protection and Wellbeing for Children

Badminton Scotland want children and young adults to feel safe and supported, not just during squad sessions and Badminton Scotland activities, but in general.

For children and under 18's involved with Badminton Scotland, it is important to know where you can access support if you have any issues.  Information will be sent out to each squad member at the start of the season and your coach will discuss Child Protection with you at the start of the season.

If you're worried about something, or if you don't feel safe and you're not sure what to do, remember there are a lot of people who can help.

Badminton Scotland Child Protection Officers: Andrew MacKenzie, 07539 118003 and Rita Yuan Gao, 07769322166
