The Pars Foundation recognise that football can have a very powerful and positive influence on communities, and especially on young people. Not only can it provide opportunities for enjoyment and achievement, it can also develop valuable life skills such as self-esteem, leadership and teamwork. These positive effects can only take place if football is in the right hands - in the hands of those who put the welfare of young people first and adopt child-centred practices that support, protect and empower them.
We are committed to embedding a rights-based approach to the wellbeing of children at The Pars Foundation. Everyone has a duty of care towards children and young people and to support this philosophy The Pars Foundation has produced a Child Wellbeing and Protection Policy. This Policy and the supporting procedures provide The Pars Foundation with robust guidelines which will protect children and young people from harm. The Child Wellbeing and Protection Officer at The Pars Foundation is Kelly Armstrong and she can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
