Great Bentley Youth FC acknowledges its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of every child and young person who has been entrusted to its care and is committed to working to provide a safe environment for all members. A child or young person is anyone under the age of 18 engaged in any club football activity. We subscribe to the Football Association’s child protection and best practice policy and procedures and endorse and adopt the policy statement contained in that document.

All coaches attending the F.A. Level 1 coaching course are trained in the best practices in ensuring a child's welfare is not put at risk.

All Current Great Bentley Youth FC members with direct access to children and young people will be required to complete a CRB Enhanced Disclosure via The FA CRB Unit.

Great Bentley Youth FC has appointed a Club Welfare Officer (CWO) in line with the FA’s role profile and required completion of the child protection workshop. The post holder will be involved with designated person’s training provided by The FA. The CWO is the first point of contact for all club members and parents or guardians regarding concerns for the welfare of any child or young person. They will liaise directly with the CFA CPO and will be familiar with the procedures for referring any concerns. They will also play a proactive role in increasing the awareness of poor practice and abuse amongst club members.
