Liverpool FC Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expects all Staff & Volunteers to share this commitment.
These roles are subject to a Disclosing & Barring Service (Enhanced) Disclosure Certificate.
At Liverpool FC we’re part of a team. We have a culture like no other – The Liverpool Way. We should walk it, talk it, live it every day and in everything we do. Safeguarding is an essential part of that culture and we are committed to ensure the welfare and safety of anyone under 18 and vulnerable adults.
We all have statutory responsibilities to ensure that we follow Safeguarding expectations, regardless of whether we work directly with these groups or not. It is our job to ensure that the welfare and safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults is prioritised. All of the Foundations safeguarding standards are underpinned by the Premier league and evaluated through external examiners (Barnardo’s).
We’ve created clear and rigours guidelines to help provide this support, so that we can ensure that children and vulnerable adults can enjoy a first-class experience at the LFC Foundation while being safeguarded from harm.
It is important that we do not assume it is not our problem. We live by the mantra that ‘it could happen here’. With this in mind we have structured systems in place to ensure that all staff members have the right knowledge and tools to report concerns and experienced safeguarding experts who can deal with concerns.
Our safeguarding structure starts with regular training for all our staff, to keep them updated on emerging trends and new detection methods. This is then backed up by having an easy to use electronic reporting mechanism (My Concern) which all staff can access. The wider team is also supported by a Foundation specific Safeguarding team who are available for advice and support.
