Fleur MacCready
Child Welfare Officer

I am Fleur MacCready, Frodsham Junior Football Club Child Welfare Officer. My role is to ensure all members understand what their duty of care is towards children and young people in the club. This involves promoting safeguarding policies, best practice and the FA Respect codes. I am also responsible for maintaining safe and responsible recruitment procedures to ensure the right people are involved in the club. In addition, I act as a first point of contact for players, parents/carers and coaches regarding any issues or concerns regarding the welfare of players.

At Frodsham Junior Football Club we ensure that our coaches are enhanced DBS checked when they first join and then every 3 years thereafter. All coaches are also required to complete the FA Safeguarding and Emergency First Aid course every three years. Every team is required to have at least 2 qualified coaches who meet these requirements at matches and training sessions.

Our aim is to also ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect and that our Club is equally accessible to all. We are committed to providing a positive, caring and friendly environment for all of our members so they can participate in football in an inclusive atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at Frodsham Junior Football Club.

All Club members and parents are expected to report any form of bullying they witness to the Club Welfare Officer or to any Executive Committee member. Any incidents of bullying will be investigated and dealt with promptly and effectively.

The Club Executive Committee and the Cheshire FA monitor compliance with these requirements.
