Summary Statement

Child Protection Policy

Sheffield Wednesday Football Club believes that the general well being and welfare of all children and young persons who are involved in a number of different capacities through the Club`s Community Programme is of paramount importance.. The Club recognise that Community Programme staff working with children and young people in a number of settings have a responsibility to keep them safe and will seek to respond to that responsibility by encouraging best practice in Child Protection matters.

The Community Programme aims to promote health, development and educational achievement alongside football and sporting activity. It recognises that children and young people have a right to be protected regardless of age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial and ethnic origin or religion. Its work on behalf of people with physical and learning difficulties can include the safeguarding of vulnerable adults as well as children and young people.
