Our safeguarding approach

Shrewsbury Town FC Foundation 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, we practice safer recruitment, including checks, training and monitoring.

The Charity 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.
