Everyone has a responsibility to help provide a safe and positive environment and to keep children and other vulnerable people safe from harm or abuse. This principle applies to our staff, helpers, parents, facility staff and anyone else involved in our City Football Schools, and they must know and play their part in this.
The City Football Group takes its 'safeguarding' responsibilities (also known as child protection) very seriously in this area wherever they are in the world and this means we are wholly committed to:
As such, our City Football Schools (Abu Dhabi) apply all the requirements of the City Football Group Safeguarding Policy (which can be downloaded here). We also ensure that we meet all relevant laws and regulations of the United Arab Emirates (for more information click here) and any country that we visit as part of the programme.
If you have a concern about the welfare or a child or the behaviour of a member of City Football staff or any other adult towards a child then please contact the designated Safeguarding Officer (Simon Hewitt) and we will take your concerns very seriously. You can also email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
City Football is also committed to helping keep children safe when using the internet. Please visit the pages of the Emirates Internet Safety Society for advice and guidance for both children and parents.
If you believe that a child has come to significant harm or abuse or is at immediate risk of harm, please call the local police immediately.Download Safeguarding Code of Conduct
