Stockport County Community Trust:
The Board of Trustees at County Community Trust and all Staff acknowledges and accepts it has a statutory obligation and responsibility for the wellbeing and safety of all Children and Young People who participate in the Trust’s activities and programmes.
The Trust Safeguarding Children Policy applies to senior managers and all staff, paid or volunteers, sessional workers, students, or anyone working on behalf of Stockpot County Community Trust and will be given to all adults working with children and young people. The well-being of children and young people is paramount, and all staff must make themselves aware of the Trust’s Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy.
County Community Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
The Club has systems in place to ensure that the welfare of vulnerable groups is dealt with appropriately and sensitively.
Everyone working at the Club has a duty of care to safeguard the welfare of children and young people by creating an environment that protects them from harm. Our standards of practice ensure all staff are fully aware of their responsibility. We confirm that all staff that have a direct responsibility for children, young people or vulnerable adults (vulnerable groups) have been subject to the most stringent of recruitment practices which include Enhanced DBS and reference checks.
