Safeguarding Children

Ipswich Town and Ipswich Town Foundation aims to adopt the highest possible
standards and recognises its duty of care to safeguard all children, young people and young
players involved in club activities. We are committed to providing a safe environment where
vulnerable groups feel safe, valued and respected. The club acknowledges that all children
have the right to protection, and the needs of those children who may have additional
vulnerabilities must be considered and addressed, such as:
● Physical disabilities.
● Mental health issues.
● Special educational needs.
● Being a displaced or looked after child.

The club will endeavour to ensure the safety and protection of all children and young people
involved in its activities through adherence to the club Safeguarding Policies, Procedures
and Guidelines. This policy applies to everyone involved with Ipswich Town Football Club
and Ipswich Town Foundation as we all share a responsibility for safeguarding and
promoting the welfare of vulnerable children. This means any person employed or deployed
to work with or on behalf of vulnerable children in a paid or voluntary capacity.
