At any club there is someone called a Welfare Officer whose role is to look after you and make sure you are safe, you should ensure that you know who this person is. At Gurnard Youth FC this person is Lisa Driscoll (07969 895015 / firstname.lastname@example.org) or Philippa Cox (07817 519344 / email@example.com
Welcome letter from our Welfare Officers:
We would like to say hello and introduce ourselves to the new players & members who have joined the club. We are the Club Welfare Officers for Gurnard Youth F.C. We are here if your child has any problems within his/her team, or the Club.
Our aim, as a Club is that every child who participates in football, should be able to do so in a fun, safe environment, and be protected from harm. Gurnard Youth F.C places the highest priority on their safety and enjoyment, and recognises that they have a duty towards children within the sport.
All Managers/Coaches and Officers involved with Gurnard Y.F.C have been DBS checked, and attended the Safeguarding Children Workshop (or are in the process of attending them) and have signed and adhere to the F.A Respect Code of Conduct for Coaches, Team Managers and Club Officials.
We do not tolerate bullying and need to be told if this happens so we can stamp it out.
If you or your child do have any problems, of any nature, or witnesses something you don’t think is right, please do not hesitate to contact one of us, in complete confidence, by phone or email.
As you can appreciate there are quite a few children who train at the training sessions, and attend matches, so can you please make sure your child is collected or your child's Manager knows how they are supposed to be getting home. The Managers NEED to know your child is getting home safely after training/matches.
Gurnard Y.F.C will be putting match reports in the IW County Press and on our website(www.gyfc.online), so we need your permission to use your child's name and take any photos.
Yours in Football
Lisa Driscoll & Philippa Cox, Child Welfare Officers
