Reporting a safeguarding issue in Taekwondo.

If you encounter something that we need to take action on, it’s important we get all the information we need as quickly and accurately as possible.

Please read the four options below and choose the most appropriate method of reporting.

Remember the 4 R’s – Recognise, Respond, Report, Record.

If you have a concern about the immediate safety of a child or adult at risk you must contact the Police or Children’s Social Care, advise your Club Welfare Officer and then complete this form.

If your concern is not regarding the immediate safety of a child or adult at risk then report it to your Club Welfare Officer or in the absence of a Club Welfare Officer, directly to our Safeguarding, Compliance & HR Manager via this form.

Expert advice can also be provided by the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000.

Have you been involved in or witnessed an incident which you feel British Taekwondo need to be aware of? Have you witnessed racism, discrimination or a breach of the Code of Conduct that we may need to investigate?

To tell us about an incident, whether you are reporting it yourself or as a witness to something that has happened, please complete this form.

Are you dissatisfied with the service you have received from British Taekwondo? Or have you tried to resolve a club issue locally, but feel you need to escalate your complaint?

If so please complete a complaint form and return it to our Safeguarding, Compliance & HR Manager at

The complaints form should be used in the case of a disqualification or other disciplinary matter, or in the case of an official wishing to draw attention to any other matter associated with the competition, which may result in disciplinary action. It should be sent to our Safeguarding, Compliance & HR Manager at

The contents of this form are confidential and should not be shown or otherwise divulged to any other person.

This must be submitted within 48 hours of the incident.
