Midlothian Child Protection Policy
Midlothian County Ladies Golf Association believes that everyone has a duty of care towards children to help protect them from abuse, and strives to provide an environment where young adults can be introduced to and participate in the game of golf in a safe and enjoyable manner. Although there is no legal requirement for Clubs to have formal policies in place, it is considered best practice to formulate and adopt such a policy.
