The Football Association
Club Child Protection Policy
Every child or young person, defined as any person under the age of 18, who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in football. The FA recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people by protecting them from physical, sexual or emotional harm and from neglect or bullying. The FA is therefore committed to working to provide a safe environment for all children and young people to participate in the sport to the best of their abilities for as long as they choose to do so.
Child Protection Policy
Olympiacos Youth FC are committed to a robust Child Protection Policy and have appointed Andy Koullas : Mob.07956 920606 as its responsible Officer, who acts as a mentor for all other Child Protection team representatives. He will also ensure our policy remains updated and fully communicated. Whilst at this time we are not a Charter Standard FA Youth club, the best practice requirements such accreditation requires are visible in our Club.
Full details of what this entails can be obtained from the FA web site at FA.com or through the Middlesex County FA web -site
( www.middlesexfa.com )
Our key objectives/terms of reference are;
- To develop a positive and pro-active policy, in order to protect our children whilst with Olympiacos Youth F.C.
- To promote sound ethics and high standards in football
- To provide a reassuring and communication outlet for every child that might need help
- To demonstrate that Olympiacos Youth FC is fit for purpose and is an environment which is safe and suitable for children
