Safeguarding and Reporting

Scunthorpe United Community Sports and Education Trust is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults who participate in our programmes.

As a minimum requirement, we expect all staff, volunteers and partners to share this commitment and believe that everyone has a responsibility to report any concerns about the welfare of any child, young person or vulnerable adult.

All staff that come into regular contact with children, young people or vulnerable adults are subjected to enhanced DBS checks, prior to employment.

Scunthorpe United CSET also adhere to policies and regulations issued by the following bodies:

  • The Football Association (The FA)
  • The Premier League
  • The English Football League (The EFL)

We also work closely with the local Safeguarding Board, who are part of the review process for any policy changes.

If you are concerned about the welfare of any child associated with Scunthorpe United CSET, please contact us immediately.

You can do this by contacting our designated safeguarding officer on the details below:
