Criminal Records Bureau
All officials associated with the Club have had their details submitted to the CRB which acts as a 'one stop shop' for organisations checking police records. The service they provide is primarily available to anyone involved in working with children or vulnerable adults, as well as certain other occupations and entry into professions as specified in the Exceptions Order to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974. Standard Disclosures show current and spent convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings held on the Police National Computer. All of our staff have been cleared by the CRB.

Child Protection
Welland Junior Football Club accepts and adopts the FA Rules, procedures and policy on Child Protection. The policy statement provides that every child and young person who plays football should be able to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in football.

FA Policy - "The Football Association recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people by protecting them from physical, sexual or emotional harm and from neglect or bullying. It is determined to meet its obligation to ensure that those clubs and organisations providing footballing opportunities for children and young people do so to the highest possible standard of care (Appendix 1 - The Football Association Regulations) "

These procedures apply to anyone in football whether in a paid or voluntary capacity. For example, volunteers in clubs, referees, club officials, helpers on club tours, football coaches and medical staff.

The Football Association will consider, having taken advice, whether anyone who has a previous criminal conviction or caution for offences related to the abuse of children or young people, violence or any sexual offences should be excluded from working with children and young people. This position is re-enforced by UK legislation and guidance.
