Does someone make you feel unhappy, miserable or worried? Does their behaviour affect how you feel about visiting your club or playing golf? It might be an adult or another young person who is doing something wrong, or making you feel uncomfortable or afraid. Either way, if it feels wrong to you, then you should talk to an adult you trust about what’s happening.
We can help you:
- To understand what child abuse is.
- explain what to do if you think someone – an adult or a young person – is doing something wrong.
- identify helplines and websites that will give helpful advice.
