Barnardo's Safeguarding Report 2019

Barnardo's and the Premier League completed their annual safeguarding audit at Fulham FC and Fulham FC Foundation in 2019. The report summarised the work of the Foundation:

"At the heart of their work is a commitment to empowering the most vulnerable members of the communities in which they work. The Foundation meets all of the (safeguarding) standards to a very high standard. Governance and leadership is excellent and there is clear evidence that safeguarding is well embedded in the organisational culture.

Staff working and volunteering at all levels of the Foundation understand their safeguarding responsibilities and there is evidence that the safety and well-being of children and adults at risk is a key consideration in all they do.

The commitment to providing a safe environment for everyone permeates from the highest level down through every aspect of the Foundation and its activities."

The essentials

  • When with us, stay in the places where they are supposed to, not wander off or leave without telling a member of staff
  • Take care of our equipment and premises as if they were their own
  • Bring the correct kit to sessions and wear clothing appropriate for the weather

  • Represent and celebrate difference in our activities and do not discriminate against anyone on the grounds of ability, gender, race or sexual orientation
  • Report any incidents of bullying, including homophobia and transphobia to a member of staff, even if they are just a witness
  • Treat other people with respect and appreciate that everyone has different levels of skill and talent
  • Help make our activities a welcome and friendly place to be
  • Support and encourage their team mates. Tell them when they've done well and be there for them when they are struggling
  • Respect our staff
  • Be a good sport, celebrate when we win and be gracious when we lose

Whilst participating in our activities, we understand participants have the right to:

Behaviour management
We expect all participants to follow the behaviours and requests set out in this code. If any participant behaves in a way which contradicts any of the points set out above, we'll address the problem straight away and aim to resolve the issue.

We will always work to support our participants, however, to ensure the safety, welfare and enjoyment for all, our coaches may issue timeouts, yellow cards and formal warnings. Continued or serious breaches of our code of conduct could lead to participants being suspended from our activities. If a serious incident occurs, we will always involve all parties and parents, where relevant. Wherever possible we'll always try to keep everyone playing.
