Bromley Football Club Academy is a committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young players. The club expect all staff, volunteers, parents/carers, young players, any partner agencies or any commissioned service providers to share this commitment.

The Chairman and The Board of Directors believe that the way in which the Academy builds success is by ensuring that the Club have the right people on the staff team (The process for this is outlined in the Academy recruitment policy). Ensuring staff and volunteers are safely recruited, are well trained, understand their roles, responsibilities and the importance of working ethically with young players will create the safe environment where our young players can develop to their full potential. Bromley Football Club Academy does this by structuring Safeguarding and welfare policies that follow the Football Association and National League Guidance.

The key principles underpinning the Academy’s welfare philosophy, values and vision are that:

  • a. The welfare of children and young people is, and must always be, the paramount consideration.
  • b. All children, young people and vulnerable adults have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial origin, religious belief or sexual identity.
  • c. All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • d. Working in partnership with children, young people and their parents/carers is an essential element of our work.
