Safeguarding Policy



BWB03 is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young players.  We expect all staff, volunteers, parents/carers, and young players to share this commitment.



The key principles underpinning welfare, philosophy, value and vision are that:

  • The welfare of children and young people is, and must always be, our paramount consideration.
  • All children, young people and vulnerable adults have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial origin, religious belief or sexual identity.
  • Working in partnership with children, young people and their parents/carers is an essential element of our work.
  • All complaints and concerns will be considered in accordance with the procedures set forth in this document.
