Please note that the British Model Flying Association is committed to the protection of its junior and vulnerable adult members. Whilst we accept that you may not wish to involve the BMFA should you have a concern, we would appreciate that you either contact the BMFA representatives listed above in the first instance or advise them if you have contacted another agency.

By doing so, we can then co-operate with all involved to ensure that any concern is quickly and fully addressed.

Please note that if you have a concern, your first point of contact should be the Club Welfare Officer (if you have one), the BMFA Safeguarding Team.

Should you wish to discuss any issue, have any concerns or have suggestions on how we may improve our policies, then please contact: the BMFA Safeguarding Team on 0116 244 0028 or
