SAFEGUARDING

YOUR SAFETY COMES FIRST

We believe that involvement in Trust activities must never leave participants open to any form of abuse.  We have comprehensive safeguarding policies and procedures in place which meet the requirements of the football bodies and statutory authorities.

By adhering to our policies, procedures and recommended standards we enable children, young people and vulnerable adults to participate in Trust activities in a welcoming, safe, fun and inclusive environment.
