Safeguarding

Safeguarding & Welfare

Alton Tennis Club is a Community Association Sports Club open to all. As such, we aim to ensure that everyone is welcome, that everyone has a positive and enjoyable experience of tennis at the club and, in particular, that young and at-risk players are protected from abuse whilst participating in tennis. The club acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of junior and at-risk adults. To this end, we have a series of safeguarding and welfare policies which can be found here and in the clubhouse. 

We are committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance and complies with best practice and LTA requirements.  Our Welfare Office, David Eyre-Brook can be contacted on 07702 492509.

Whistleblowing

Anyone who does not feel comfortable raising a concern with the Club Welfare Officer should contact the LTA Safeguarding Team directly at https://safeguardingconcern.lta.org.uk, the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) or the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000.  Further details about whistleblowing can be found in the club’s safeguarding and whistleblowing policies.

Monitoring

The club’s safeguarding policy will be reviewed every two years, or sooner in the following circumstances:

  • changes in legislation and/or government guidance
  • as required by the Local Safeguarding Children Board or LTA
  • as a result of any other significant change or event.
