Safeguarding is a fundamental aspect of our club and there are varying types of Welfare cases that the club deal with. If you are worried about a child, it’s vital you report your concerns at the earliest opportunity. Doing nothing is not an option.
Collectively we have an ongoing duty to ensure the game is a safe, positive and enjoyable experience for all those that have an association with the club be it players young and old, club coaches, spectators and/or match officials.
Our united approach to safeguard across the game is driven by a clear three-part strategy:
Implementing preventative safeguarding measures (such as safer recruitment) to create fun, safe football environments;
Making the reporting of concerns as easy as possible;
Ensuring safeguarding, child protection and adult at risk concerns are investigated swiftly and thoroughly in conjunction with statutory agencies – and with demonstrable outcomes.
