PLEDGING OUR SUPPORT FOR THE PLAY SAFE WEEKEND 2023
Saturday 30th Sept/Sunday 1st October
At the end of this month, English football at every level will unite to promote Play Safe – a national campaign to focus attention of the vital importance of safeguarding in our national game.
Led by The Football Association, the Play Safe campaign is endorsed by the NSPCC and supported by every level of the game, including the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship, and right across the grassroots game.
We are proud to be supporting Play Safe on our website and social media channels – and also by making an online Play Safe Pledge. Our pledge will see us continue to provide and maintain a safe environment for all players, We will ensure that all coaches, spectators and players associated with our club act in a responsible manor at all times. Together as a club we will act upon and report any individual associated with Great Barr Harriers or not in the appropriate manor.
Of course, safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, so if you haven’t already, why not make your own Play Safe Pledge? We encourage you to do so.
“Safeguarding is of paramount importance in various contexts, including child protection, adult protection, cybersecurity, and environmental protection. Safeguarding plays a critical role in protecting the most vulnerable individuals and ensuring the well-being and security of individuals, communities, and society. It encompasses a wide range of areas, from personal safety to environmental preservation, and is essential for maintaining a just and humane society”... Andy Baker Chairman.
This year’s Play Safe weekend has two main messages:
• ‘Everyone, everywhere, every time’ should have an understanding of safeguarding in football;
• Everyone should ‘watch, listen, talk and act’ if they have any safeguarding concerns.
If you have a safeguarding concern, or would like some advice, the person to contact at Alistair Smith on 07910736496
Together, let’s create an ever-safer culture across the game we all love.
