If you are concerned about anything at all the following people / organisations may be able to help.
If your concern is in your badminton club then speak to your Club Welfare Officer if you know who they are.
The JBA Welfare Officer is Mrs. Jo Cunningham and she can be reached at email@example.com , or on the phone at 07797 738844.
If you do not have a Welfare Officer speak to your coach (if is not about them) or your parents who may take up the issue with an appropriate person in your club.
In Jersey we are fortunate to have a specific referral system called MASH (Jersey's Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub). More detail can be found at this link.
MASH is our recommendation, however you can contact Badminton England by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Childline on 0800 1111.
