Wrexham Football Club takes its safeguarding responsibilities very seriously. We have our own Safeguarding Policy which demonstrates our commitment to helping keep children and young people safe. The Club also has many other associated policies and consistently applies guidance produced by the FA.
Everyone has a responsibility to help keep others safe, in particular children, young people
and other vulnerable people. The club staff will be constantly vigilant to ensure that visitors and other staff are not exposed to risk, abuse, harassment or harm. Parents or carers can also help with this by reporting any concern they have. Once people feel safe they can enjoy themselves. When children and young people feel safe, they will grow and develop as people and football players.
Wrexham Football Club recognises its legal and moral responsibilities to safeguard the welfare of any person who takes part in or attends its activities.
When young people feel safe they will grow and develop. Club staff will be vigilant and listen to those in their care, and where appropriate, act on their needs or concerns. Everyone has the right to be safe and to feel safe. The Club will work tirelessly across its workforce to provide and promote a safe environment for all players, parents, staff and visitors.
We are committed to providing a leading football programme through a talented workforce. All staff that comes into regular contact with children and young people will be appropriately qualified, vetted, trained and supervised.
The Club expects everyone here to treat others with respect and as such does not tolerate bullying, victimisation, harassment or abuse. We will treat any such instances very seriously and ensure that they are dealt with swiftly and fairly.
Wrexham Football Club has a number of people trained and ready to deal with matters of abuse, harassment or bullying involving vulnerable people.
