SAFEGUARDING

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility

We place the safeguarding and welfare of young people high on our agenda. It's the responsibility of every adult involved in football, thus every club is required to endorse and adhere to The FA’s Safeguarding Children Policy.

It’s important to remember that every child or young person, defined as any person under the age of 18, or adult at risk, who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse.

CLUB WELFARE OFFICERS

Everyone involved with Langtoft United  players, parents and coaches must know who their Club Welfare Officer is and should have the CWO contact in their personal phones as an important point of contact to raise concerns.

SAFER RECRUITMENT FOR VOLUNTEERS

The intentions of most people who work with children in football are good. However, as part of football’s commitment to provide safe and enjoyable environments, sound recruitment and selection procedures are essential.

 

When clubs or leagues recruit new members, all reasonable steps must be taken to ensure unsuitable people are prevented from working with children and young people both in open-age teams (who have players aged under 18) and in youth football.

Langtoft United have adopted Safe Recruitment ensuring that all volunteers are suitable for their roles before they start. To have the relevant qualifications in place, DBS, Safeguarding for Children Certificate, First Aid.

The club want a safe, fun and inclusive learning environment for everyone.
