Sport can and does have a very powerful and positive influence on people – especially children. Not only can it provide opportunities for enjoyment and achievement; it can also develop valuable qualities such as self-esteem, leadership and teamwork. These positive effects can only take place if sport is in the right hands – in the hands of those who place the welfare of all children first and adopt practices that support, protect and empower them. The reality is that abuse, not only sexual abuse but physical and emotional abuse, as well as bullying, does take place in sport.
Featherstone Lions has put together this care plan to ensure the safety of our children and ensure all volunteers working within our club are here for the right reasons.
A physical copy of this plan will be given to all team managers while a digital copy will be made available to all volunteers below on this page
This plan is a source of reference and includes all our policies and all information required to ensure all staff, volunteers, parents, and spectators conduct themselves correctly and keep the children at the club
