Safeguarding

Newcastle United Foundation is committed to safeguarding, as far as reasonably possible, the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults who participate in our programmes.

We expect all staff, volunteers and partners to share this commitment and believe that all staff, volunteers and partners have a responsibility to report any concerns about the welfare of any child, young person or vulnerable adult.

We are committed to ensuring that:

  • The safety and welfare of children, young people and adults at risk whilst under our care is paramount;
  • All children, young people and adults at risk that engage with the Foundation, regardless of age, culture, background, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious belief and or sexual identity have the right to safety and protection from abuse or harm;
  • All suspicions, reports and/or allegations of abuse are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly which may involve the appropriate local authority teams & emergency services where necessary;
  • Appropriate action is taken if/when necessary following any investigation of reported poor practice.

We do this by:

  • Working hard to ensure we recruit the right people to be involved with our work
  • Ensure we train and monitor staff to ensure they exhibit the right behaviours
  • Have clear processes in place to deal with any incident, concerns or allegations

All staff who come into regular contact with children, young people or vulnerable adults are subjected to enhanced DBS checks, prior to employment.

Newcastle United Foundation also adhere to policies, regulations and guidance issued by the Football Association, the Premier League and the Football League and work closely the NSPCC and Local Authority Safeguarding Boards.

We also work closely with Newcastle United Football Club’s Head of Safeguarding and Welfare, Steve Swinyard, and we have our own appointed Safeguarding Officers, Steve Beharall and Andrew Foster who sit on NUFC’s safeguarding team.
