Safeguarding & Welfare

Ossett Town Juniors place Safeguarding and Child Welfare above all else. ALL volunteers complete a Criminal Record Check before they start working within our age groups.

If you are a player or a parent/carer and have any concerns, you can contact one of our two specially trained Club Welfare Officers. These are:

Kelly Carrotte – contact 07546 505 879 – kellycarrotte@gmail.com
Richard Carr – contact 07852 230 713 – r.carr6@icloud.com

If you have any wider queries or concerns around welfare issues, please contact the West Riding County FA Welfare Officer paul.ratcliffe@westridingfa.com or visit the FA Safeguarding site here: https://www.thefa.com/footballsafe


Further support for Players and Parents:

CEOP (Child Exploitation Online Protection)
CEOP is part of the National Crime Agency and is committed to protecting the public from serious and organised crime. CEOP’s role is to tackle the sexual exploitation and abuse of children, both online and offline. Ossett Town Juniors have signed up to CEOP and display the ‘Click CEOP’ button on every page of our website. If you’re worried about online abuse then you can let CEOP know.

Childline
If you are being bullied, or you are not ready to make a report to CEOP, you can talk to Childline anonymously online or on the phone – No worry is too big or too small.

Childline is a free, private and confidential service. Whatever your worry, whenever you need help, however you want to get in touch. Childline are here for you online, on the phone, anytime.

NSPCC
Alongside its own procedures for responding to and reporting concerns about a child, The FA promotes the use of the NSPCC helpline 0808 800 5000.

The NSPCC helpline is open 24hrs a day and is a place adults can contact by phone or online to get advice or share their concerns about a child, anonymously if they wish. It’s staffed by professional practitioners with backgrounds in jobs like teaching, healthcare and social work, who know how to spot the signs of abuse and what to do to help.

If you have concerns about a child or young person please contact the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000 or by emailing help@nspcc.org.uk
