Child Welfare

Gorey Celtic Football Club are committed to ensuring that all our schoolchild members can participate in football and all related activities in a safe and enjoyable environment.

We support and advocate the FAI’s  Child Welfare Policy and the Irish Sports Council’s Code of Ethics and Good Practice in Children’s Sport. All our coaches and committee members are obliged to take the Child Protection and Welfare training course run by the FAI/Sport Ireland.

The Club’s Child Liason Officer is a member of the Committee and is responsible for monitoring and overseeing compliance with the FAI and Sports Council of Ireland policies and codes in respect of child protection and welfare.

All coaches, managers, officers and Club members involved with teams under the age of 18 are Garda vetted.
