Safeguarding & Welfare

Wantage Lawn Tennis Club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all its members and to ensuring our safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance, and complies with best practice and LTA requirements. 

Links to all the Safeguarding Policies and supplementary documents may be found on the Policies page of this website.

LTA Safeguarding at Events, Activites and Competitions
The Welfare Officer has reviewed the LTA document in “Safeguarding at Events Activities and Competitions WLTA” which was discussed by the Committee on 3 March 2019. This document can be read following the link here.


Reporting a Concern

If you see a situation which you think will compromise the safety or well-being of anyone at our club please contact the Welfare Officer. Please see the Reporting a concern form and guidance on the policies page.  It is essential to keep a clear record of concerns and actions.

A summary of our approach to Safeguarding was presented to members at the 2018 AGM in November. The Document can be read following the link here
