Child Welfare

Broomfield FC takes the issue of child welfare and safeguarding seriously and we have a designated Child Welfare Officer in accordance with official FA guidelines. All our youth team managers and coaching assistants undertake a DBS check every 3 years as well completing mandatory Safeguarding Children Training along with Emergency First Aid.

The club also has a Safeguarding Children Policy, and follows the FA Anti-Bullying Policy and Equal Policy as part of our requirement to meet the FA Charter Standard Club status.

Broomfield FC have adopted a range of FA best practice guides to support our ways of working (available on the website), these include:

  • Use of Social Media, Websites, Texts and e-mails

  • Use of Dressing Rooms for Youth Football

  • Appropriate use photography

We continue to support the FA's RESPECT Campaigns with use of FA codes of conduct for Players, Coaches, Parents and Supporters as well as Match Officials.

We will ensure that Respect barriers are in place for all home Youth Football matches, in order to ensure a safe distance between the field of play and supporters. All supporters will be asked by Team Managers to spectate matches safely from behind the barrier and behave in line with the Code of Conduct for spectators
