We acknowledge that every child or young person who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from poor practice and abuse.
We recognise that this is the responsibility of every adult involved in our club.
Nunthorpe Athletic Junior Football Club has a role to play in safeguarding the welfare of all children and young people by protectingthem from physical, sexual or emotional harm and from neglect or bullying. It is noted and accepted that The Football Association's child protection regulation (see The FA Handbook)
applies to everyone in football whether in a paid or voluntary capacity. This includes those who are a volunteer, match official,helper on club tours, football coach, club official or medical staff.
Our overall aim is to safeguard the well being of children who are involved with Nunthorpe Athletic Junior Football Club. We have adopted FA guide lines and strategies to help us implement this.
Should anyone have any information that would help us identify persons who may cause a threat to children in our care, we urge them to come forward and talk in absolute confidence to our child welfare office Keith Duffy or Colin Mohan our Club Chairman. We are able to call upon the help and advice of Cleveland Police, North Ryding FA, The FA, Social Services and any other public body that can assit with identifying risk and therefore enable us to deal with these rare incidents swiftly and confidently and help prevent any situations unfolding.
We want all parents and children to posses 100% confidence in Nunthorpe Athletic Junior Football Club and for the children to feel they are able to express themselves as young persons whilst in our care.
