Safeguarding

Spennymoor Town Youth Football Club (STYFC) are committed to the highest standard of care for all our players. We have assigned welfare officers who work independently from the management to ensure all procedures are relevant and adhered to.

Our safeguarding policy matches the documentation supplied by the Football Association (FA). Further information of which can be found at http://www.thefa.com/football-rules-governance/safeguarding

The key principles covered within this policy are:

  • the child’s welfare is, and must always be, the paramount consideration
  • all children and young people have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, race, sexual orientation, faith or belief
  • all suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately
  • working in partnership with other organisations, children and young people and their parents/carers is essential
