Safeguarding

The care and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults visiting and participating in United Players activities is important. Everyone who participates in United Players has a role to play in promoting a safer group for all. The United Players have created a child protection policy which can be downloaded here.


If you have any worries or concerns about yourself or another person that may be being harmed or is at risk of harm, we will do our best to help you.


If you have any concerns that an individual involved in, or associated with the United Players may be acting inappropriately or harming another we want to know.

If a child, young person or adult is in immediate need of protection the police should be called.


Social services in each local authority can also be contacted to advise on a safeguarding concern.
