Club Doncaster safeguarding
Club Doncaster is the elite brand of sporting organisations working to support and strive forward our community.
We work with a culture that promotes unity, creativity and aspiration to promote success – this is why we are Club Doncaster.
We work across Doncaster via our own activities, and are associated with a number of different projects, organisations and brands that are involved with Children and Vulnerable Groups. This is a key part of our local community work.
Club Doncaster acknowledges and accepts it has a responsibility for the wellbeing and safety of all children, young people and vulnerable groups it works with. It is the duty of the persons assigned by Club Doncaster to safeguard their welfare and maintain an environment that protects from harm. Club Doncaster has a number of appointed persons who have a responsibility to manage the Safeguarding function throughout the organisations.
We have detailed policies within all areas of Club Doncaster to ensure that we are promoting safer working practices in all areas of the business from our recruitment to general day to day practice, and learning from incidents.
We abide and work with all statutory agencies, Doncaster Local Safeguarding Children Board, the RFL, the FA and EFL, to ensure that we are meeting their regulations and specifications across the organisation, and aiming for best practice with all areas of our practices.
Club Doncaster Youth Forum
Staff at Club Doncaster takes the views of all of the stadium users seriously, and this helps the club shape its activities and how the club can ensure that it is continually evolving.
Club Doncaster are recruiting for a newly formed Club Doncaster Youth Forum, which will help the club to shape and consult with children and young people to help shape and develop our policies, procedures and events across all sports at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Club Doncaster are looking five young people between the ages of 12-18 to represent the children and young people who attend matches and the stadium events to join representatives from Doncaster Sports College, Club Doncaster Development Pathway, Club Doncaster Titans, and Doncaster Rovers Academy.
The newly created group will build on the success of all Club Doncaster organisations and look at specific consultation projects that will help us to keep in touch with children and young people, ensuring their views are heard, recognise and celebrate achievements, and keep them safe.
Should you wish to be considered to be a part of the Youth Forum, please outline your reasons why you think you can best represent Doncaster and help develop Club Doncaster continue to ensure children and young people have the best experience here. You are welcome to be creative with your applications via a video, letter, drawing, or anything you can think that best represents the teams we have here.
