Safeguarding our club ...
At Southbrook we take child welfare very seriously, we have a team of welfare officers available to assist any member of our club with any welfare issues they may have.
Whistle-blowing can be used as an early warning system or when it’s recognised that appropriate actions have not been taken. This approach or policy is adopted in many different walks of life.
It is about revealing and raising concerns over misconduct or malpractice within an organisation or within an independent structure associated with it.
Any adult or young person with concerns about a colleague can also use whistle-blowing by calling 0800 169 1863 and asking for The FA's safeguarding team, or via email on safeguarding@TheFA.com.
Alternatively you can go direct the Police or Children’s Social Care and report your concerns there, or to the Child Protection in Sport Unit via firstname.lastname@example.org or the NSPCC Helpline via 0808 800 5000 or by emailing email@example.com
