The way that Windsor FC Youth attract, recruit and retain the most appropriate coaches to oversee the tremendous demand for children wishing to join the club is critical and to ensure that the club embeds best practice for doing this, across over forty teams.

The structure for the Welfare pillar of the club needs to be adequately resourced and then communicated on the club website for access by coaches and parents alike with regards policies and procedures along with the clubs’ code of conduct.

Please contact us if you would you like to volunteer to support our welfare officer and gain qualifications and skills that can help you in your workplace and career?

At the centre of all Football and Club activities is the most important of the three pillars of Windsor FC Youth, namely Welfare.

Any issues concerning safeguarding children are to be addressed immediately to our Club Welfare Officer (CWO).  It is not our responsibility to decide if abuse has taken place but if we have concerns it is our responsibility to act and report those concerns.

The club seeks to ensure best practices for player welfare across all forty plus teams are applied consistently by all coaches. The way that Windsor FC Youth attract, recruit and retain the most appropriately skilled coaches to fulfill the tremendous demand for children wishing to join the club is critical.

Most people who get involved in football do so for all of the right reasons; however it’s important that football recognises its responsibility to safeguard and protect children and young people who are involved in football. Responsible Recruitment procedures help to screen out those people who are not suitable to work with children and young people. Windsor FC Youth believes that football should be safe and enjoyable for all children and has Criminal Records Checks (CRC)  to help in this process.

The club website is here to provide coaches and parents/carers alike with access to information policies and procedures along with the clubs’ ethos and code of conduct. The Welfare pillar of the club needs to be adequately resourced with Assistant Club Welfare Officers at all age groups. If you would you like to volunteer and gain qualifications and skills that can help you in your workplace and career please contact our CWO.
