FA Whistleblower Policy Statement
"Whistle-blowing can be used as an early warning system or when it's recognised that appropriate actions have not been taken. It is about revealing and raising concerns over misconduct or malpractice within an organisation or within an independent structure associated with it. Any adult or young person with concerns about a colleague can also use whistle-blowing by contacting The FA's safeguarding team on 0800 169 1863 Extension 6300 or 6400 or via email on safeguarding@TheFa.com. Alternatively you can go direct to the Police or Children's Social Care and report your concerns there." Our club encourages everyone to know about this information and utilise it if necessary.
The club has recently started to work with sports therapist Jo Brocksom to give players the opportunity to see a private physio. She is currently involved with Winchester City FC so is an expert with football injuries. To seek her help either contact Vice Chairman Tony on firstname.lastname@example.org or Jo on 07874 339889.Follow @winchcityflyers
