Taking Safeguarding Seriously
Derby County Football Club Women are committed to safeguarding the welfare of our Club Members including Players, Coaches and Staff.
All concerns surrounding safeguarding should be dealt with in the correct manner with the point of contact to raise issues named above.
For more information regarding our procedures please refer to our Academy Handbook and our Club Development Philosophy.
Our Safeguarding Policy and relevant documentation will be uploaded in due course.
If you have concerns about the safety or wellbeing of a child or vulnerable adult at Derby County Football Club Women, you can contact us via email. A member of our Safeguarding Team will review the information you have provided within 24 hours and decide what action needs to be taken.
We have a duty to share information that you give us with other agencies if we think that a child or vulnerable adult could be at risk of harm.
Alternatively, concerns can be reported to the following organisations:
Direct to the local Police or Children’s Social Care services, information on this can be found here: derby.gov.uk/health-and-social-care/saf...
The Child Protection in Sport Unit at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000 or email: email@example.com
What we need from you...
Please say as much as you can about the situation – it will help us take the right action. Tell us the facts that you know, as well as any concerns you have about the individual.
Can I remain anonymous?
You can contact us anonymously if you do not want to tell us who you are. However, it's really helpful to have your name and contact details, as we may need to contact you for more information in order to protect the child or vulnerable adult that you are concerned about.
