They recommend asking what safeguarding policies and training those involved in the clubs have had as well as ensuring that any club or organisation is registered with an official body that can regulate them.

Police say that if you have concerns about the safety of a child or the running of an organisation involving children, contact The Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0345 0507666.
