Barnet FC Safeguarding Policy

Barnet Football Club is committed to safeguarding the welfare of adults at risk and children. The Club expects and demands that all its staff, players, volunteers and visitors to the site share our commitment. 

The Club believe that its staff, players, volunteers and visitors have a moral obligation to report any concerns about an adult or child at risk to the Club. 

Barnet Football Club is committed to ensuring that: 
1.    The safety and welfare of adults at risk and children under the Club’s care is of paramount importance. 
2.    All adults at risk and children that are involved with Barnet Football Club, regardless of age, gender, language, culture, social background, disability, racial origin, religious beliefs and/or sexual identity have the right to safety and protection from abuse or harm in any form. 
3.    All suspicions, reports and/or allegations of abuse will be treated seriously and be thoroughly investigated, which may involve the appropriate local authority where required. 

Furthermore, the Club would also strongly encourage anyone with an allegation of, or information regarding, historic child abuse to report it to the NSPCC / FA Helpline on 0800 023 2642 and to the police, where specially trained staff will be able to provide advice and guidance.
