5. Photography, Videoing and the use of Social Media Policies

Think very carefully before contacting a young person via mobile phone, e-mail or social

media.

Do not accept children as contacts on social networking sites if you hold a position of trust

with children/young people.

In general stick to group communications, copy the communication to a parent and only

communicate about organisational matters.

What should I do if I'm concerned about a child or young person?

A concern may involve the behaviour of an adult towards a child at the club, or something

that has happened to the child outside the club.

Children and young people may confide in adults they trust, in a place where they feel

comfortable.

An allegation may range from verbal bullying, to inappropriate contact online, to neglect or

emotional abuse, to physical or sexual abuse.

If you are concerned about a child, it is not your responsibility to investigate further, but it is

your responsibility to act on your concerns and share them.

Pass the information to BOVEY CASTLE GC Welfare Officer who will follow the club's

Safeguarding procedures.
