Safeguarding

Plymouth Argyle Football Club is committed to providing a positive, inclusive experience for young people who come into contact with the Argyle Family.

Plymouth Argyle is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and adults at risk and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.

A child centred approach is fundamental to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of every child. PAFC’s Safeguarding Children Policy and Safeguarding Adults at Risk Policy are linked to ensure the safety and protection of vulnerable groups. In combination with our other safeguarding policies we provide robust safeguarding procedures for everyone involved in delivering our activities.
