Manchester City Football Club strives to ensure that everyone in our care or attending our activities feel safe and free from risk of harm. The Club takes its safeguarding responsibilities very seriously and we are committed to creating a safe and positive environment for everyone.
We believe that everyone at the club shares the responsibility for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, so our policy and practices are applicable to everyone involved. The staff and partners working with the club will work tirelessly to embed the culture of safeguarding across every aspect of the club and its activity. We are committed to having the right people involved through a robust recruitment process which include checks, training and monitoring.
