Policy on Safeguarding and Protecting Young People
Slough Hockey Club is committed and dedicated to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all young people involved in hockey. We accept a responsibility to help safeguard the welfare of young people and protect them from harm.
Every individual (Coaches, players, parent volunteers, umpires, referees and other officials) within SHC has a role and responsibility to help ensure the safety and welfare of young people (any people under the age of 18). Every individual within SHC must accept that they are required to fulfil their duty of care, which means that they must do everything, that can be reasonably expected of them to help safeguard and protect young people from any reasonable foreseeable harm.

All individuals within SHC must make themselves aware and have a good understanding of the clubs Child Protect Policy, Recognising Poor Practice and Abuse guidance and Reporting procedure.
