Eldwick Juniors Football Club is committed to ensuring the club has the correct processes and procedures in place to ensure children and adults are able to take part in football in a safe, fun and enjoyable environment.
The FA have a simple three part approach to help everyone…
• Getting the right people involved – carrying out references and CRB checks
• Creating a safe environment – codes of conduct, education and best practice
• Promoting clear systems to deal with any concerns, policy and procedures
Getting the right people involved
The Welfare Officer is involved in the recruitment process when we have appointed a new Coach. Eldwick Juniors has a policy where all new volunteers/coaches have to complete an interview and an FA CRB disclosure online form before they become involved with coaching children and/or vulnerable adults. All of our existing Managers, Coaches or Assistant and Managers have valid FA CRB certificates.
Creating a safe environment
Eldwick Juniors Managers, coaches and/or Assistant Managers have attended Safeguarding Children Training, 1st Aid and have suitable qualifications before coaching children and/or vulnerable adults. We have risk assessments, Best Practice and policies in place that our Managers, coaches and/or Assistant Managers follow.
Promoting clear systems to deal with any concerns, policy and procedures
