We're committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all young people to play squash. It's our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all young people and protect them from poor practice, abuse and bullying.
We recognise that everyone has a responsibility to safeguard and protect all young people and have therefore developed policy, procedures and guidelines in safeguarding and protecting young people in squash. These apply to all individuals involved, paid or in a voluntary capacity in squash.
