The NGB may have guidelines for individuals who are the subject of a suspension for a child protection matter, and for clubs that wish to suspend a coach, volunteer or member of staff. England Golf has produced guidance.

Details of organisations that can support those against whom allegations have been made, as well as children, their parents and others involved can be found in the Support Services Contact List.

It should be noted that the NGB CPO is able to provide support even if an allegation has not led to a serious disciplinary outcome. Ill feeling, long-term misunderstandings or ongoing recriminations can be avoided if the NGB CPO deals with these issues in a timely, professional manner.
