Child Protection: If you have any concerns about child protection or welfare contact our Child Protection Representative Shane O’Neill. It is also possible to seek urgent advice from F.A./NSPCC helpline 0808 800 5000, Social Services or the Police and inform The F.A. Head of Education and Child Protection or The F.A. Child Protection Administrator. All the FA information is available at GOAL – Leading the Way in Child Protection. The paragraphs below are based upon the FA child protection guidelines.
Every child and young person who plays football should be able to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in football.
We recognise, however, that child abuse is also a very emotive and difficult subject. It is important to understand the feelings involved but not to allow them to interfere with our judgment about any action to be taken. The Aston Clinton Colts recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people by protecting them from physical, sexual or emotional harm and from neglect or bullying.
