Here at Swinton Football club we are passionate about Safeguarding and we constantly strive to create a safe and secure environment for everyone.
We aim to ensure that everyone who visits Swinton FC, which includes players, Coach’s, family members, visitors and officials are treated fairly and with RESPECT and that Swinton Football Club is equally accessible to them all.
The Safeguarding team is responsible for supporting and ensuring that the English FA’s standards and values are applied throughout the club at every level. Football belongs to all and should be enjoyed by everyone, equally. Swinton FC is committed to confront and eliminate discrimination whether by reason of gender, sexual orientation, marital status, race, nationality, ethnic origin, colour, religion or belief, ability or disability and will promote and encourage equal opportunities.
We will ensure that we treat people fairly and with respect and that Swinton FC will support the development of access and opportunities with junior and youth football to enable everyone to take part in, and enjoy, our activities.
Swinton FC will not tolerate harassment, bullying, abuse or victimisation of an individual.
This includes sexual or racially based harassment or other discriminatory behavior, whether physical or verbal.
In conjunction with Manchester County FA and the Salford &District Football League we will work to ensure that such behavior is met with appropriate action in whatever context it occurs.
In partnership with Manchester County FA and the S&DFL Swinton Football Club commits itself to the immediate investigation of any claims of discrimination on the above grounds and where such is found to be the case, a requirement that the practice stop and sanctions be imposed, as appropriate.
