Welfare & Safeguarding

Everyone who participates in activities at Newton Storm is entitled to do so in an enjoyable and safe environment. Storm has a moral and legal obligation to ensure that, when given responsibility for young people, coaches and volunteers provide them with the highest possible standard of care.

The Club is committed to devising and implementing policies so that everyone in the sporting areas facilitated at the club accepts their responsibilities to safeguard children from harm and abuse. This means to follow procedures to protect children and report any concerns about their welfare to the appropriate authorities within the Club, in the first instance.

The aim of this policy is to promote good practice, providing children and young people with appropriate safety/protection whilst in the care of Newton Storm and to allow officers and volunteers to make informed and confident responses to specific child protection issues.

If you have any concerns or would like any more information please contact any Committee Officer, or specifically the Club Welfare & Safeguarding Officer (Ken Hughes – 07919 593199) or Chairman (Ben Logan - 07729 460017).
