Confidentiality and Respect

The welfare of the child is paramount, no guarantees of secrecy or confidentiality can be given to information regarding a child as the child’s welfare and safety supersedes all other considerations. Information should only be passed to individuals who are in appropriate positions to safeguard a child’s welfare and safety. Information regarding children and young people should therefore be managed in a respectful, professional and purposeful manner. Confidentiality must be a priority for all persons involved in suspected poor practice, or the subject of a concern or an allegation of abuse within the club.
