What is the process for reporting a Safeguarding concern?
Any concerns about a child or adult at risk should be raised with your club's Welfare Officer or the LTA Safeguarding Team as soon as possible. It is best practice to gain consent before you share a concern, however you can still share information to help keep them safe.
If you have a concern about a child, you should, where possible, gain parental consent to share information unless you believe the parents may have committed the abuse or that to do so would put the child, yourself or another person at risk of harm.
If you have a concern about an adult at risk and they have not given consent to share information, you can still share the information if you reasonably believe they are at risk of harm to themselves or others, or someone has committed or is likely to commit a criminal offence.
