Twickenham Tigers Football Club is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of every child and young person who has been entrusted to our care and is committed to working to provide a safe environment for all members. A child or young person is anyone under the age of 18 engaged in any club football activity. We subscribe to The Football Association’s child protection and best practice policy and procedures and endorse and adopt the policy statement contained in that document. Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility and we encourage anyone to discuss a concern about a child or the behaviour of adults around the child with our CWO.
Our Child Welfare Officer is an important member of our club committee and makes sure that everyone involved in running club activities understands that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
