MISSION STATEMENT: SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN & ADULTS AT RISK IN SPORT
 
The Zesh Rehman Foundation as an organisation believes that: Coaches who are working with children (under 18), or who who are in an environment where they may be in occassional contact with children or adults at risk, should demonstrate the capacity to build and sustain professional boundaries and appropriate relationships with children, adults at risk, families, colleagues and other professionals. This will establish a safer working environment which will safeguard all participants and reduce the risk of Coaches and other colleagues being falsely accused of improper or unprofessional conduct.
 
A 'child' is a person under the age of 18 years.
 
Coaches involved with sport organistions ensure that children and adults at risk are welcomed into a safe, positive, caring and encouraging environment. It is the responsibility of Coaches associated with the ZRF to treat one another and all colleagues within the sport organisation with respect, dignity, sensitivity and fairness irrespective of race, age, gender, disability, religion, culture and sexuality.
 
The ZRF believes that:
  • The individuality and personal privacy of children at risk should be respected
  • Children should be listened to and engaged in the decision making process where appropriate. Advice and guideance should be positive and constructive
  • Children should be encouraged to express their views freely, openly and respectfully

This means that Coaches should:

  • Provide a positive role model in terms of good conduct
  • Operate at all times according to the best practice guidance and procedures as set out by their own sport's National Governing Body: Football Association or Premier League Safeguarding Policies
  • Maintain professional relationships with children and adults at risk and observe the boundaries of such a relationship
  • Challenge unacceptable behaviour and report all concerns or allegations of poor practice or possible abuse

If you have a concern about a child or young person (under 18 years) or adults at risk in your Club/Sport or organistion - please let us know.
