Safeguarding Policy 

The safety of children and adults at risk is of paramount importance to Hull City Tigers and Tigers Sport and Education Trust, and we shall continue to do our utmost to help safeguard children, young people and adults at risk in our care. 
We believe that football should be an enjoyable activity for everyone whether as a participant or spectator, child or adult. We continue to do all we can to encourage the participation of all sectors of the community and to make the involvement in football a healthy, life-enhancing, and safe experience.  
As a Club and as a Trust, we are fully committed to safeguarding and providing a safe environment for children, young people and adults at risk and will always take appropriate action to ensure children, young people and adults at risk are safe. We fundamentally believe that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility

Things we ask staff to remember when dealing with children, young people or vulnerable adults:
