Where can I access information about safeguarding?
You will find our Safeguarding policy, procedures and guidelines on safeguarding and protecting young people in squash on the Safe Squash page of our website.
If you are considering taking (or have already booked) an England Squash Participation Award (Level 1) course, you will need to obtain a safeguarding certificate (in addition to completing a DBS check). Existing coaches and coach members should also keep these up to date (have completed both in the past three years). There are two options available for the Safeguarding certificate:
- Attend a 3 hour Sports Coach UK Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshop – log on to www.sportscoachuk.org for further information.
- Complete the NSPCC online Child Protection Awareness in Sport & Active Leisure course via https://www.nspcc.org.uk/what-you-can-do/get-expert-training/child-protection-sport-online-course
