Guidelines and Procedures 1 of 6

1. Safeguarding

The Government’s guidance ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children 2013’ states that ‘safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and sets out how individuals and organisations should work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We provide DBS checks for all coaches and Reporting Procedures for concerns within the club.

Contact our Welfare Officers who should be your first contact to report any safeguarding concerns.

We fully adopt the England Hockey policies and procedures which can be found here: England Hockey Safeguarding

Oxfordshire Safeguarding Board can also be contacted for reporting concerns inside or outside the club.
