We have worked closely with the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) NSPCC and the Ann Craft Trust to develop robust policies and procedures to safeguard children and adults at risk, achieving the NSPCC & CPSU's National Advanced Standards for safeguarding and protecting children in sport. We work closely with all our clubs and statutory agencies to ensure that safeguarding children and adults at risk is prioritised. Any allegation, suspicion of harm or concern is taken seriously and responded to swiftly, fairly and appropriately.
Our Safeguarding Policy, Adults at Risk Policy & Regulations set out the key principles that our organisation adheres to as well as providing best practice guidance. We also have guidance for our clubs, parents, players, staff and welfare officers.
It is recommended that all of our documents be reviewed regularly and updated by clubs and associations as a matter of good practice and in light of recent safeguarding issues raised in the media. These can be downloaded here.
