Child Protection 1 of 4

1. Volunteers

The Club will keep a Volunteers Register to ensure that the Club operates within the guidelines governing Child Protection.

All volunteers will be required to complete a Club Volunteers Application & Registration form, if they wish to be involved with the Club. This covers all aspects of voluntary work within the Club i.e. Team Managers, coaches, student coaches, parent helpers & all Club officials.

All volunteers must consent to being screened in accordance with Child Protection Policies & agree to completing a Football Association Personal Disclosure Form & CRB check. This is to protect the welfare & safety of the children within the Club. This is to ensure that the Club adopts good practice when recruiting volunteers to safeguard young players in our care. Crosfields J.F.C. will ensure that all personal data & information kept will be held in line with data protection regulations & will ensure its confidentiality.

The Club recognises the importance of volunteers & values them. All Team Managers, coaches, student coaches, parent helpers & Officials are all volunteers & indeed the Club simply cannot run without them. The Club has appointed a Volunteers Co-ordinator to provide a contact for all new volunteers, to ensure that the implementation of the Clubs Development Plan for Volunteers, & to help existing volunteers to get the support or training that they require. If you would like to become a volunteer for the Club, please let your Team Manager know & they will provide you with the relevant forms.
