Looking after yourself and those around you.

We know how stressful the current situation is but we remain available in safeguarding.  If we can’t directly answer any concerns you may have, we can usually advise where to go for additional help and support.

Please contact us via email safeguarding@badmintonengland.co.uk and we can call you back at any time.

There is also a large amount of support and online resources available from various agencies on many areas linked to mental health, support and the Covid 19 situation.  We have grouped some of the ones we have found useful below:
