The Queen’s Club Foundation Safeguarding Policy
The Queen’s Club Foundation (the “Foundation”) believes that it is always unacceptable for a child, young person or adult at risk to experience abuse of any kind and acknowledges its duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk. The Foundation is committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, the requirements of the governing bodies of lawn tennis, rackets, real tennis and squash, government guidance and complies with best practice from the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU). All children, young people and adults at risk whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious beliefs and/or sexual orientation or socio economic background have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse while participating in the Foundation supported activities.
Given the nature of our work being grant giving only, Foundation Staff Members, Trustees or Volunteers would not have direct and unsupervised contact with a child or vulnerable person, but we recognise our responsibility for promoting best practice with regards to safeguarding and the grants we provide. The Foundation accepts safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility to act appropriately and raise concerns.
The Foundation is committed to delivering grants to organisations who follow safe procedures across all their activities.
