Club Safeguarding Policy
We are a community recreational cricket and football club with an ethos of care and support to our members. Membership is conditional on the acceptance of two charters - one for Members and the other for their Family - which require compliance with several important obligations. Under the direction of an experienced Club Safeguarding Officer, the Safeguarding Team provides the eyes and ears of the welfare process. Police checks and other references are required for most volunteer roles and the club reserves the right to seek these for any member. Zero tolerance is practiced in relation to breaches in some obligations, particularly in relation to the welfare of children and vulnerable adults.
A high level of awareness of the Club Safeguarding Policy and role of the Safeguarding Team is required.
Club members and their families are invited to comment on this Club Policy which will be regularly updated to reflect latest welfare practice including the procedures required to implement policy and evidence of compliance. This Club Policy is reviewed by the Management Committee at its regular meetings.
