Stafford Hockey Club takes its responsibilities to its players very seriously. We have adopted and conform to England Hockey’s safeguarding policy and hold a comprehensive insurance policy to protect players and members of the public. We are registered with and comply with England Hockey’s Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for all club members and coaches in leadership positions. These checks are updated every three years most recently during the 2017-2018 season.
If you have any queries or wish to report a safeguarding concern, please contact one of our welfare officers below. If you are a young person in need of someone to talk to about things that are bothering you, you can call ChildLine on 0800 1111.
