Club Welfare Officer Update
Welfare and Safeguarding Update
The 2017/18 season has continued to focussed on ensuring that those who play grassroots football do so in a safe and happy environment. At Upton JFC we have continued to work with all our volunteers to ensure that qualifications and CRC checks are maintained and that new volunteers are welcomed to the Club with the relevant onboarding protocols. It has been a particular pleasure to welcome the 31 coaches and volunteers from the girls section, with a number of dedicated “First Aiders” supporting the girls teams.
From a regulatory perspective, the Executive Committee has been fully focused on working through the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Requlations (GDPR) that came into force on 25th May. Whilst the regulations are lengthy, the impact on the club is relatively straightforward. The major impact is that we have published a Privacy Notice and a Data Protection Policy, links to both can be found below.
Additionally, this coming season, all registrations will be done via Paysubsonline, we feel that this is the best way for us to be able to safeguard personal data. We are extremely fortunate to have this process in place and provision will be made for anyone who cannot pay online. This information will be published after the AGM.
As always, the focus is on the safety of your children, so if anyone has any thoughts, queries or ideas please contact Eleanor or me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
