Child Wellbeing and Protection Policy

One of the Scottish FA’s ‘Leading the Game’ 2015-17 goals in Scotland United 2020 is to introduce a children’s wellbeing programme to embed safeguarding and child protection.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC fully supports the development of this initiative. These policies, procedures and safeguards therefore begin this rights-based process of ensuring children and young people are safe when they play football. This begins with understanding and promoting their rights, raising awareness of children’s wellbeing and recognising what needs to be done and the requirement to act on this when a child needs help or support.

Ultimately this will contribute to better experiences for children playing football. Regardless of age, gender, ability, ethnicity, location or their ambition to play, the goal is to ensure the consistency of a positive experience for every child. In addition to this document, there is a 3 hour  Scottish FA  Child Wellbeing in Scottish Football workshop that every member of Inverness CaledonianThistle FC staff, involved with players under the age of 18, takes part in.
