Child Protection Policy
Harborne Hockey Club is committed to creating and maintaining the safest possible environment for children and young people.
We do this by:
- Accepting our moral and legal responsibilities to provide a duty of care for young people.
- Recognising that all children have the right to freedom from abuse and the chance to participate in a safe and non threatening environment.
- Respecting and promoting the rights, wishes and self determination of young people.
- Ensuring that all our coaches and volunteers are carefully selected, trained and supervised and accept responsibility for helping to prevent the abuse of children in their care.
- Responding swiftly and appropriately to all suspicions or allegations of abuse.
- Establishing and providing clear procedures for parents and children to voice their concerns or lodge complaints if they are dissatisfied or concerned about any aspect of our provision.
- Appointing a nominated Welfare Officer who will take responsibility for child safety and act as the main point of contact for parents, children and outside agencies.
- Ensuring access to confidential information is restricted to the Welfare Officer and appropriate external agencies.
- Ensuring when travelling to matches or competitions Harborne Hockey Club and its members have the safety of the child as their principle responsibility.
