At Pennywell Honto Shin we are committed to safeguarding children and young people under the age of eighteen and all instructors within the club share this commitment. Instructors and adults within our club or organisation take all welfare concerns seriously and encourage children and young people to talk to us about anything that may be worrying them. Our objective will always be to always act in the best interest of the child.
