Safeguarding & Protecting Young People

Leek Hockey Club believes that all young people involved in hockey have a fundamental right to be protected so that they can enjoy the sport free from all forms of abuse and exploitation. We have adopted England Hockey's Safeguarding and Protecting Young People policy.

Leek Hockey Club believe that managers, coaches, members, individuals with any involvement at any level within the Club have responsibilities to help protect young people and should familiarise themselves with the Safeguarding and Protecting Young People policy to help ensure that this happens. We will endeavour to have CRB checks done on all individuals who have contact with young people through Leek Hockey Club.

Safeguarding means promoting the safety and welfare of young people. Safeguarding is a term used to incorporate good practice and is wider than “Child Protection”. Child protection is still an essential element of this policy and is about acting on concerns about a young person or individual.

This policy has been formulated in accordance with guidance from the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) and in line with Government guidance.

Leek Hockey Club's Welfare Officer is Paula Gwinnett.
