Safeguarding

Walton Warriors take all aspects of Safeguarding very seriously and can only do this with the help, vigilance and support of all involved with the club from Coaches through to our parents, all of whom help maintain this standard.

Below are some important links, contacts and downloads in relation to the whistle blowing policy and process of reporting welfare/safeguarding concerns which if possible should begin with contacting Our Club Welfare Officer.

“Whistle-blowing”

Whistle-blowing can be used as an early warning system or when it’s recognised that appropriate actions have not been taken. This approach or policy is adopted in many different walks of life. It is about revealing and raising concerns over misconduct or malpractice within an organisation or within an independent structure associated with it.

Any adult or young person with concerns about a colleague can also use whistle-blowing by calling 0800 169 1863 and asking for The FA's safeguarding team, or via email on safeguarding@TheFA.com.

Alternatively you can go direct to the Police or Children’s Social Care and report your concerns there, or to the Child Protection in Sport Unit viacpsu@nspcc.org.uk or the NSPCC Helpline via 0808 800 5000 or by emailing help@nspcc.org.uk.
