Important information on safeguarding
Child Welfare and Safeguarding
Everyone in football has a responsibility to safeguard the children and young people involved in the game. It is mandatory for every youth football club affiliated to the FA to have appointed a fully qualified and DBS checked Club Welfare Officer (CWO). This role involves attending an FA Safeguarding Children and a Welfare Officer Workshop.
At Stevenage Borough Juniors FC our Club Welfare Officer (CWO) is currently Andy Martin. It is the responsibility of the CWO to ensure that children and young people who play for SBJFC can play football in a safe and non-threatening environment and are not subject to any physical or verbal abuse.
All parents and carers should be aware of thier own safeguarding responsibilities which can be found on the following link with all other Safeguarding guidance.
If you have any concerns, incidents or questions in relation to welfare or child protection which you would like to discuss in confidence, please email Andy.Martin@stevenageborojfc.co.uk
