EBFA Policy - Child Welfare

Date Policy

Child Welfare

Child welfare/protection is high on The League's agenda.

The objectives of the League are to have someone in every member club who is aware of child welfare/protection and best practice.

Toward this end the League is announcing two major initiatives

1) From the 2005/2006 season all member Clubs will have to inform the League of the contact details of their Child Welfare/Protection Officer and they relevant qualifications.

2) From May 2007 all Clubs which wish to participate in the East Berks Youth Football League 2007/2008 season, must have achieved the FA Charter Scheme Status. Any Club who has not achieved this status will have their membership of the League reviewed by the Management Committee.

The League totally supports the FA's Goal scheme, for Child Protection, which is about doing things the right way, doing things properly.

Goal is about allowing children to enjoy the game without abuse of any kind. That means bullying, physical, emotional or sexual abuse and neglect.

The FA and League believes football can have a powerful positive influence on children. But that means everyone involved in football must take on the responsibility of looking after those children that want to play the game.
