Working With Children
Clubs must ensure compliance and record keeping with all employees and volunteers who are involved with child-related work and must comply with relevant legislation with regard to working with children.
All football clubs have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for all participants, this is particularly important for junior clubs to ensure a comprehensive approach to child protection and creating child safe environments.
Responsible football organisations must ensure:
- All employees or volunteers undergo criminal record screening
- All employees or volunteers undergo background checks
- They have in place relevant policies and procedures to ensure children are protected
