SafeGolf Accreditation by 2021

SafeGolf accreditation has been launched by England Golf for affiliated clubs and facilities.

The SafeGolf accreditation process is designed to enable clubs, through easily accessible documents and templates, to ensure they are delivering a safe environment for the sport to be played in.

The SafeGolf accreditation process will become part of the England Golf affiliation process from January 2021.

In order to assist Clubs to achieve accreditation regional workshops have been organised for the following:

Time to Listen Workshops

Time to Listen, is a three-hour, interactive workshop which has been developed by the NSPCC’s Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) and looks in detail at the role of the welfare officer.
In order to achieve SafeGolf accreditation clubs must appoint a club welfare officer who has completed a Time to Listen workshop. This workshop became compulsory for all club welfare officers from 1st April 2019.

Here are details of workshops that have been organised across Yorkshire:

Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshops

The Safeguarding & Protecting Children workshop will raise your awareness of the telltale signs of abuse, and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise.

In order to achieve SafeGolf accreditation professionals, volunteers and other staff working regularly with juniors need to have completed a face to face Safeguarding & Protecting Children workshop within the last 3 years or completed the online refresher course within the last 3 years having previously attended at least one face to face workshop.
