Equal Opportunity Policy
Alveston Football Club acknowledges its role and responsibilities towards every member of the club and to the general public as well. We subscribe to the Anti Discrimination Procedures and Practices contained in the handbook published by The Football Association (FA) in November 2000 and endorse and adopt the Policy Statement contained in the document.
Alveston F.C's Governance/Welfare Director is Alan Fisk who has attended the FA’s 3 hour Child Protection and Best Practices Workshop.
Alan's contact details are as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org
Every child or young person who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuseand discrimination. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in football. The FA 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 and bullying. It is determined to meet it s obligations to ensure that those clubs and organisations providing football opportunities for children and young people do so, to the highest possible standards of care. (Appendix 1 – The Football Association Regulation) 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.
In order to meet the objectives set out above Alveston FC has appointed a nominated contact, who will be the first point of contact to ensure that we deliver a quality service to the community.
