British Taekwondo is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children in all Taekwondo activities. We have worked closely with the Child Protection In Sport Unit (CPSU) and NSPCC to develop robust policy and procedures to safeguard children, achieving the NSPCC & CPSU’s Standards for safeguarding and protecting children in sport. We work closely with all our clubs and statutory agencies to ensure that safeguarding children is prioritised. Any allegation, suspicion of harm or concern is taken seriously and responded to swiftly, fairly and appropriately.

British Taekwondo’s policy sets out the key principles as well as providing best practice guidance. For more information about safeguarding please contact Rachel Smith our Safeguarding and Compliance Manager at or 07568503791.
