Welfare Policy Statement
Ballinteer St. John’s GAA Club is fully committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of all our members. Whilst, child safety and protection is of utmost importance, the remit of the Welfare committee extends to all members including adult players, mentors, volunteers and all our club community.
Every individual involved in our Club activities is expected to show respect at all times and to act in a manner that will maintain a safe and enjoyable environment for all. We require all those who come into contact with children in the Club to comply with the highest possible standards of behaviour.
We aim to promote the participation of children in our club by creating a culture of safety and fun. We recognise that all children have the right to be safe and that this fundamental principle takes precedence over all other considerations. There is a duty of care on all adults in our Club to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of children engaged in our games and activities.
“Children have the right to be protected from all forms of violence; they must be kept safe from harm, and they must be given proper care by those looking after
(Article 19; UN Convention on the Rights of the Child)
The Welfare Committee would like to thank all club members for their cooperation in adhering to and promoting our welfare, best practice and safety policies and procedures.
