The Kent Hockey Association recognises that issues around child protection are paramount in sport and follows the EHB recommendations to be found on their website.
Therefore, it is our intention to invest in the development and active dissemination of policy and procedures which ensure that the child’s interests and protection are to the fore in all our policies, procedures, activities and events within hockey. In addition, we will ensure that the policy and procedures will provide volunteers with protection whether they are coaching, umpiring or involved in any other capacity.
Child Protection has a high priority in the Association and and we ensure that coaches and managers involved in working with children at County level hold a current Criminal Records Bureau check.
The Association’s Child Protection Officer is: Loraine Bant, Tel: 01843 836396.
