The Club is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable
adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
The Club has systems in place to ensure that the welfare of vulnerable groups is dealt with appropriately and
sensitively. Everyone working at the Club has a duty of care to safeguard the welfare of children and young
people by creating an environment that protects them from harm. Our standards of practice ensure all staff are
fully aware and understand their responsibilities under safeguarding legislation and statutory guidance.
The Club ensures that all staff that have a direct responsibility for children, young people, or vulnerable adults,
have been subject to the most stringent of recruitment practices which include DBS and reference checks. These
staff are alert to signs of abuse or maltreatment and will refer concerns to the relevant Designated Safeguarding
Officers using the agreed safeguarding procedures.
