EFL SAFEGUARDING STANDARDS GUIDE

Our Safeguarding Standards Guide

10 April 2021

The EFL aims to embed safeguarding throughout the EFL and its Member clubs, and to put in place a preventative strategy which brings the policies and procedures to life.

The EFL will do everything within its power to prevent harm and abuse from happening within the EFL and its member Clubs, and when allegations and disclosures occur, it will respond quickly, appropriately and effectively in order to safeguard. 

The EFL’s Safeguarding Standards Guide is attached HERE.

We recognise that as a professional football club and member of the EFL, we have a duty of care to all children, young people and adults at risk who participate in activities delivered by us. 

The EFL guide forms an important part in creating the framework and requirements we follow.

Carlisle United is commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young players and staff. 

We expect all staff, volunteers, parents/carers, young players, any partner agencies or any commissioned service providers to share this commitment. We have a proactive and integrated approach to safeguarding.

As a club we will leave no stone unturned in relation to developing our approach to safeguarding. 

We will do everything within our power to prevent harm and abuse from happening within our club and when allegations and disclosures occur, we will respond quickly, appropriately and effectively in order to safeguard those in our care.

There can be no safe sport in an unsafe society, we expect sport and ourselves to be held to a higher standard. We can reduce risks, learn from previous cases.

Carlisle United has developed, and will continually review, our safeguarding policies including a Children Protection Policy and an Adults at Risk Policy as well as our Safeguarding Strategy, Safeguarding Risk Register and Standards for our operations. 

Our documents endorse and promote our Safeguarding Policy and Procedures to comply with these EFL Standards.
