Safeguarding at Shrewsbury Town is everyone’s responsibility
Shrewsbury Town Football Club is committed to Safeguarding. It is our responsibility, with you, to ensure everyone in our care or attending our activities is in a safe environment - free from risk and harm.
We are a learning organisation, always looking to improve our standards. We have policies in place to support and guide us, our children, young people, and vulnerable adults. We are committed to having the right people involved, and we practice safer recruitment, including checks, training, and monitoring.
The Club complies with Government legislation relating to Safeguarding Children, and adults at risk. We adhere to both FA regulations and regulatory requirements of the EFL. We have formed links with our partners at Shropshire Local Authority.
We have a comprehensive Safeguarding Policy, supported by our Board, Management, and Staff. We have a listening culture, embedding good practice whilst constantly striving to improve our service. We have a robust system in place where we respond to all reported Safeguarding concerns, these are recorded, investigated, and reviewed.
