EB Lions AFC

EB Lions AFC place the utmost importance on the issue of Child Welfare.  We believe that all children have the right to participate in football in a safe and enjoyable environment where they are protected from any form of abuse or harm.

All of our committee, coaches and managers have undertaken a Safeguarding course either as part of the Coaching course or as an additional course.

My name is Stacey Coath, I am a parent of one of the clubs’ players and I am the designated Child Welfare Officer for EB Lions.  I work with the County FA Welfare Officer to promote the FA’s Respect programme and to develop knowledge and awareness on child safeguarding.

If you have any concerns at all, whether you are a player, parent, coach or friend, please do not hesitate to contact me at childwelfare@eblions.co.uk  . Any concerns, suspicions or allegations will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and confidentially.

For more information on the club ethos and policies please go to:  Our Club – Policies Guides and Docs.
