Safeguarding at Otford Netball Club

As well as the coach who will teach you about netball, our club has a Safeguarding Officer who you can talk to about anything which worries you, this could be yourself or someone else. They will do their best to help you and explain what they can do. Sometimes this means talking to other people and England Netball has a Lead Child Protection Officer who will help the Club Safeguarding Officer know how best to help you. We suggest that you talk to someone.

You can also talk to someone outside the club, by contacting 01509 277850 or email: Childline: 0800 1111, Police or Children’s Services.

We also have lots of other support for you if you have any problems in your life. There are lots of online support organisations and there is always someone to talk to.

If there is anything making you unhappy or worrying you, tell someone about it, it may not be as bad as you think, there will be people who can help you, just ask for it. These websites give you advice and support that you may find helpful. They are confidential.
