Safeguarding

Fulham FC Foundation is committed to the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people who are under the Club’s care or utilising the Club’s facilities. It is the duty of all adults working at the Club to safeguard the welfare of children and young people by creating an environment that protects them from harm.

The aims of Fulham FC Foundation’s Safeguarding Children Policy are to:

  • Safeguard all children and young people who interact with the Club.
  • Demonstrate best practice in the area of Safeguarding children.
  • Positively reflect and promote the Club Values (Pioneers, Confident Custodians, Action Orientated, Open & Inclusive and Service Excellence) in regard to safeguarding children.
  • Develop a positive and pro-active welfare programme to enable all children and young people to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment.
  • Encourage parents and other members of the child or young person’s family to be involved in a positive relationship with the Club.
  • Ensure that coaches, parents and other adults who come in contact with children and young people provide good role models of behaviour.
  • Promote high ethical standards throughout the Club.

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."
