MTFC Safeguarding Children Policy

Macclesfield Town Football Club acknowledges its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of every child and young person who has been entrusted to its care and is committed to working to provide a safe environment for all members.

A child or young person is anyone aged 18 or below engaged in any club football activity. We subscribe to the EFL’s Safeguarding Children Policy and Procedures and endorse and adopt the Policy Statement contained in that document.

The main principles of the policy are that:

The child’s welfare is, and must always be, the paramount consideration

All children and young people have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial origin, religious beliefs or sexual orientation.
