Code of practice for parents and guardians

Forest Badminton Club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well being of all its young players. The club believes that it is important that members, coaches, administrators and parents associated with the club should at all times show respect and be encouraged to be open in sharing any concerns or complaints they may have about any aspect of the club with Gill Fairham, Junior Coordinator or Alex Bird, Club Child Welfare Officer.
