Young People and Safeguarding
BTA is a registered organisation within the LTA. In order to achieve this we are committed to implement and operate according to the Young Persons and Vulnerable Adults Safeguarding Policy and the Diversity and Inclusion Policy of the LTA.
All coaching staff at BTA are qualified and licensed, which ensures that they are vetted by the LTA Coaching Department and have enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) clearance. BTA has adopted the LTA guidelines and codes of conduct for the recruitment of all its volunteers, including those working with junior members.
Our Welfare Officer is Helen Trill who can be contacted by e-mail H.Trill@btinternet.com or telephone 01628 602422
