Policy statement

These policies, procedures and safeguards introduce a rights – based process of ensuring children and young people are safe when they play football. This begins with understanding and promoting their rights, raising awareness of children’s wellbeing and recognising what needs to be done and the requirement to act on this when a child needs help or support.
Ultimately this will contribute to better and safer experiences for children playing football within the Football Club.
Regardless of age, gender, ability, ethnicity, location or their ambition to play, the goal is to ensure the consistency of a positive experience for every child. In addition to this document our volunteers will complete the Coach Education
online workshop – Children’s Wellbeing in Scottish Football.
Our policies, procedures and safeguards meet the standards of the International Safeguards for Children in Sport and also comply with sport scotland’s Minimum Operating Requirements for Safeguarding Children in Scottish Sport and in guidance with the SFA.

Policy aims
The aim of the Cumbernauld Colts Child Protection Policy is to promote good practice:
* Providing children and young people with appropriate safety and protection whilst in the care of Cumbernauld Colts FC;
* Allow all staff /volunteers to make informed and confident responses to specific child protection issues.
