Minds United Football Club are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our members so they can participate in football in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable in our county. If bullying does occur, all members or parents should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. We are a TELLING organisation. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the Designated Safeguarding Officer or any member. This organisation is committed to playing its part to teach players to treat each other with respect.
What is Bullying?
Bullying is the use of aggression with the intention of hurting another person. Bullying results in pain and distress to the victim.
Bullying can be:
• Emotional being unfriendly, excluding (emotionally and physically) sending hurtful text messages, tormenting, (e.g. hiding football boots/shin guards, threatening gestures)
• Physical pushing, kicking, hitting, punching or any use of violence
• Sexual unwanted physical contact or sexually abusive comments
• Discrimination racial taunts, graffiti, gestures, homophobic comments, jokes about disabled people, sexist comments,
• Verbal name-calling, sarcasm, spreading rumours, teasing.
This is when a person uses technology i.e. mobile phones or the internet (social networking sites, chat rooms, instant messenger, tweets), to deliberately upset someone. Bullies often feel anonymous and ‘distanced’ from the incident when it takes place online and ‘bystanders’ can easily become bullies themselves by forwarding the information on. There is a growing trend for bullying to occur online or via texts – bullies no longer rely on being physically near to the young person. Minds United Football Club commits to ensure our website websites and/or social networking pages are being used appropriately and any online bullying will be dealt with swiftly and appropriately in line with procedures detailed in this policy.
Why is it Important to Respond to Bullying?
Bullying hurts. No one deserves to be a victim of bullying. Everybody has the right to be treated with respect. Individuals who are bullying need to learn different ways of behaving.
This club has a responsibility to respond promptly and effectively to issues of bullying.
Objectives of this Policy
• All members, coaches, officials and parents should have an understanding of what bullying is.
• All members, officials and coaching staff should know what the club policy is on bullying, and follow it when bullying is reported.
• All players and parents should know what the policy is on bullying, and what they should do if bullying arises.
• As a club we take bullying seriously. Players and parents should be assured that they would be supported when bullying is reported.
• Bullying will not be tolerated.
Bullying as a result of any form of discrimination
Bullying because of discrimination occurs when bullying is motivated by a prejudice against certain people or groups of people. This may be because of their gender, age, race, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, disability or ability.
Generally, these forms of bullying look like other sorts of bullying, but in particular it can include:
• Verbal abuse – derogatory remarks about girls or women, suggesting girls and women are inferior to boys and men, or that black, Asian and ethnic minority people are not as capable as white people; spreading rumours that someone is gay, suggesting that something or someone is inferior and so they are “gay” – for example, “you’re such a gay boy!” or “those trainers are so gay!” Ridiculing someone because of a disability or mental health related issue, or because they have a physical, mental or emotional developmental delay. Referring to someone by the colour of their skin, rather than their name; using nicknames that have racial connotations; isolating someone because they come from another country or social background etc.
• Physical abuse – including hitting, punching, kicking, sexual assault, and threatening behaviour.
• Cyberbullying – using online spaces to spread rumours about someone or exclude them. It can also include text messaging, including video and picture messaging.
Discrimination is often driven by a lack of understanding which only serves to strengthen stereotypes and can potentially lead to actions that may cause women, ethnic minorities, disabled people, lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people, or people who follow specific religions or beliefs, to feel excluded, isolated or undervalued. Ensure that club members know that discriminatory language and behaviour will not be tolerated in this club.
• If an incident occurs, members should be informed that discriminatory language is offensive, and will not be tolerated. If a member continues to make discriminatory remarks, explain in detail the effects that discrimination and bullying has on people. If it is a young person making the remarks their parents should be informed just as in any breach of the clubs Code of Conduct and this Anti-Bullying policy.
• If a member makes persistent remarks, they should be removed from the training setting in line with managing challenging behaviour and the Club Welfare Officer or club officials should talk to them in more detail about why their comments are unacceptable.
• If the problem persists, the member should be made to understand the sanctions that will apply if they continue to use discriminatory language or behaviour.
• Consider inviting the parents/carers to the club to discuss the attitudes of the youth member in line with the procedures detailed in this policy.

3.1 The following terms will be used in this policy and are defined below:
3.2 Data Subjects include all living individuals about whom we hold personal data, for instance an employee or a supporter. A data subject need not be a UK national or resident. All data subjects have legal rights in relation to their personal data.
3.3 Personal Data means any information relating to a living person who can be identified directly or indirectly from that information (or from that information and other information in our possession). Personal data can be factual (such as a name, address or date of birth) or it can be an opinion (such as a performance appraisal). It can also include an identifier such as an identification number, location data, an online identifier specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that person.
3.4 Data Controllers are the people who, or organisations which, decide the purposes and the means for which, any personal data is processed. They have a responsibility to process personal data in compliance with the Legislation. Minds United Football Club is the data controller of all personal data that we manage in connection with our work and activities.

(f) adapting or altering;
(h) disclosing by transmission;
(i) disseminating or otherwise making available;
(j) alignment or combination;
(l) erasing; or
(m) destruction of personal data.
3.9 Sensitive Personal Data (which is defined as “special categories of personal data” under the GDPR) includes information about a person's:
(a) racial or ethnic origin;
(b) political opinions;
(c) religious, philosophical or similar beliefs;
(d) trade union membership;
(e) physical or mental health or condition;
(f) sexual life or orientation;
(g) genetic data;
(h) biometric data; and
(i) such other categories of personal data as may be designated as “special categories of personal data” under the Legislation.
4.1 Anyone processing personal data must comply with the six data protection principles set out in the GDPR. We are required to comply with these principles (summarised below), and show that we comply, in respect of any personal data that we deal with as a data controller.
4.2 Personal data should be:
(a) processed fairly, lawfully and transparently;
(b) collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a way which is incompatible with those purposes;
(c) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purpose for which it is held;
(d) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date;
(e) not kept longer than necessary; and
(f) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data.
5.1 The first data protection principle requires that personal data is obtained fairly and lawfully and processed for purposes that the data subject has been told about. Processing will only be lawful if certain conditions can be satisfied, including where the data subject has given consent, or where the processing is necessary for one or more specified reasons, such as where it is necessary for the performance of a contract.
5.2 To comply with this principle, when we receive personal data about a person directly from that individual, which we intend to keep, we need to provide that person with “the fair processing information”. In other words we need to tell them:
(a) the type of information we will be collecting (categories of personal data concerned);
(b) who will be holding their information, i.e. Minds United Football Club including contact details and the contact details of our Data Protection Officer (if we have one);
(c) why we are collecting their information and what we intend to do with it for instance to process donations or send them mailing updates about our activities;
(d) the legal basis for collecting their information (for example, are we relying on their consent, or on our legitimate interests or on another legal basis);
(e) if we are relying on legitimate interests as a basis for processing what those legitimate interests are;
(f) whether the provision of their personal data is part of a statutory or contractual obligation and details of the consequences of the data subject not providing that data;
(g) the period for which their personal data will be stored or, where that is not possible, the criteria that will be used to decide that period;
(h) details of people or organisations with whom we will be sharing their personal data;
(i) if relevant, the fact that we will be transferring their personal data outside the EEA and details of relevant safeguards; and
(j) the existence of any automated decision-making including profiling in relation to that personal data.
5.3 Where we obtain personal data about a person from a source other than the person his or her self, we must provide that individual with the following information in addition to that listed under 5.2 above:
(a) the categories of personal data that we hold; and
(b) the source of the personal data and whether this is a public source.
5.4 In addition, in both scenarios, (where personal data is obtained both directly and indirectly) we must also inform individuals of their rights outlined in section 9 below, including the right to lodge a complaint with the ICO and, the right to withdraw consent to the processing of their personal data.
5.5 This fair processing information can be provided in a number of places including on web pages, in mailings or on application forms. We must ensure that the fair processing information is concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible.
6.1 The second data protection principle requires that personal data is only processed for the specific, explicit and legitimate purposes that the individual was told about when we first obtained their information.
6.2 This means that we should not collect personal data for one purpose and then use it for another. If it becomes necessary to process a person’s information for a new purpose, the individual should be informed of the new purpose beforehand For example, if we collect personal data such as a contact number or email address, in order to update a person about our activities it should not then be used for any new purpose, for example to share it with other organisations for marketing purposes, without first getting the individual’s consent.
The third and fourth data protection principles require that personal data that we keep should be accurate, adequate and relevant. Data should be limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is processed. Inaccurate or out-of-date data should be destroyed securely, and we must take every reasonable step to ensure that personal data which is inaccurate is corrected.
8.1 The fifth data protection principle requires that we should not keep personal data for longer than we need to for the purpose it was collected for. This means that the personal data that we hold should be destroyed or erased from our systems when it is no longer needed. If you think that we are holding out-of-date or inaccurate personal data, please speak to Tarik Kaidi.
8.2 For guidance on how long particular types of personal data that we collect should be kept before being destroyed or erased, please contact Tarik Kaidi or seek legal advice.
9.1 The GDPR gives people rights in relation to how organisations process their personal data. Everyone who holds personal data on behalf of Minds United Football Club needs to be aware of these rights. They include (but are not limited to) the right:
(a) to request a copy of any personal data that we hold about them (as data controller), as well as a description of the type of information that we are processing, the uses that are being made of the information, details of anyone to whom their personal data has been disclosed, and how long the data will be stored (known as subject access rights);
(b) to be told, where any information is not collected from the person directly, any available information as to the source of the information;
(c) to be told of the existence of automated decision-making;
(d) to object to the processing of data where the processing is based on either the conditions of public interest or legitimate interests.
(e) to have all personal data erased (the right to be forgotten) unless certain limited conditions apply;
(f) to restrict processing where the individual has objected to the processing;
(g) to have inaccurate data amended or destroyed; and
(h) to prevent processing that is likely to cause unwarranted substantial damage or distress to themselves or anyone else.
10.1 The sixth data protection principle requires that we keep secure any personal data that we hold.
10.2 We are required to put in place procedures to keep the personal data that we hold secure, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
10.3 When we are dealing with sensitive personal data, more rigorous security measures are likely to be needed, for instance, if sensitive personal data (such as details of an individual’s health, race or sexuality) is held on a memory stick or other portable device it should always be encrypted.
10.4 When deciding what level of security is needed, your starting point should be to look at whether the information is sensitive or highly confidential and how much damage could be caused if it fell into the wrong hands.
10.5 The following security procedures and monitoring processes must be followed in relation to all personal data processed by us: measures to restore availability and access to data in a timely manner in event of physical or technical incident; backing up data (daily back-ups should be taken of all data on the system and data should not be stored on local drives or removable media as these will not be backed up); entry controls (any stranger seen in entry- controlled areas should be reported); staff should ensure that individual monitors do not show confidential information to passers-by and that they log off from their PC when it is left unattended; paper documents should be shredded, memory sticks, CD-ROMs and other media on which personal data is stored should be physically destroyed when they are no longer required; personal data must always be transferred in a secure manner (the degree of security required will depend on the nature of the data - the more sensitive and confidential the data, the more stringent the security measures should be)other measures to ensure confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems; ; desks and cupboards should be kept locked if they hold confidential information of any kind (personal information is always considered confidential) and staff must keep data secure when travelling or using it outside the offices.
11.1 The GDPR requires that when organisations transfer personal data outside the EEA, they take steps to ensure that the data is properly protected.
11.2 The European Commission has determined that certain countries provide an adequate data protection regime. These countries currently include Andorra, Argentina, Canada,
Guernsey, Isle of Man, Israel, New Zealand, Switzerland, Faroe Islands, Jersey and Uruguay, but this list may be updated.
11.3 As such, personal data may be transferred to people or organisations in these countries without the need to take additional steps beyond those you would take when sharing personal data with any other organisation. In transferring personal data to other countries outside the EEA (which are not on this approved list), it will be necessary to enter into an EC-approved agreement, seek the explicit consent of the individual, or rely on one of the other derogations under the GDPR that apply to the transfer of personal data outside the EEA.
11.4 The EU-US Privacy Shield is an instrument that can be used as a legal basis for transferring personal data to organisations in the US, although specific advice should be sought from the data protection officer (if we have one) before transferring personal data to organisations in the US.
11.5 For more information, please speak to the Grants Officer/Office Manager or seek further legal advice.
12.1 On some occasions we may collect information about individuals that is defined by the GDPR as special categories of personal data, and special rules will apply to the processing of this data. In this policy we refer to “special categories of personal data” as “sensitive personal data”. The categories of sensitive personal data are set out in the definition in Section 3.9.
12.2 Purely financial information is not technically defined as sensitive personal data by the GDPR. However, particular care should be taken when processing such data, as the ICO will treat a breach relating to financial data very seriously.
12.3 In most cases, in order to process sensitive personal data, we must obtain explicit consent from the individuals involved. As with any other type of information we will also have to be absolutely clear with people about how we are going to use their information.
12.4 It is not always necessary to obtain explicit consent. There are a limited number of other circumstances in which the GDPR permits organisations to process sensitive personal data. If you are concerned that you are processing sensitive personal data and are not able to obtain explicit consent for the processing, please speak to Tarik Kaidi.
13.1 We recognise that whilst there is no obligation for us to make an annual notification to the ICO under the GDPR, we will consult with the ICO where necessary when we are carrying out “high risk” processing.
13.2 We will report breaches (other than those which are unlikely to be a risk to individuals) to the ICO where necessary, within 72 hours. We will also notify affected individuals where the breach is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of these individuals.
14.1 This policy is reviewed every year by our board of trustees to ensure that it is achieving its objectives.
Safeguarding Adults Policy
We are a community football club and aim to improve adults wellbeing through the power sport, we may have adults with care and support needs as we get referrals from the NHS and other charities that support individuals with mental health issues.
Minds United Football Club will not tolerate the abuse of adults in any of its forms and is committed to safeguarding adults with care and support needs from harm.
This policy outlines the steps Minds United Football Club will make to safeguard an adult with care and support needs if they are deemed to be at risk or at risk. This policy sets out the roles and responsibilities of Minds United Football Club in working together with other professionals and agencies in promoting the adult’s welfare and safeguarding them from abuse and neglect.
Minds United Football Club will ensure that decisions made will allow adults to make their own choices and include them in any decision making. Minds United Football Club will also ensure that safe and effective working practices are in place.
This policy is intended to support staff and volunteers working within Minds United Football Club to understand their role and responsibilities in safeguarding adults. All staff and volunteers are expected to follow this policy.
The key objectives of this policy are for all employees and volunteers of Minds United Football Club to:
· have an overview of adult safeguarding
· be clear about their responsibility to safeguard adults
· ensure the necessary actions are taken where an adult with care and support needs is deemed to be at risk
This policy is based on:
- The Care Act 2014 and the Care and Support statutory guidance
- London Safeguarding Adults policy and procedures
Under the Human Rights Act 1998, everyone has the right to live free from abuse and neglect. https://www.equalityhumanrights.com/en/human-rights/human-rights-act
Copies of this policy should be available within Minds United Football Club and Minds United Football Club will not tolerate the abuse of adults in the organisation and staff and volunteers should be made aware of how this policy can be accessed.
What is Safeguarding adults?
‘Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and stop both the risks and experience of abuse or neglect, while at the same time making sure that the adult’s wellbeing is promoted including, where appropriate, having regard to their views, wishes, feelings and beliefs in deciding on any action. This must recognise that adults sometimes have complex interpersonal relationships and may be ambivalent, unclear or unrealistic about their personal circumstances.’
Care and Support Statutory Guidance, Department of Health, updated February 2017
All adults should be able to live free from fear and harm. But some may find it hard to get the help and support they need to stop abuse.
An adult may be unable to protect themselves from harm or exploitation due to many reasons, including their mental or physical incapacity, sensory loss or physical or learning disabilities. This could be an adult who is usually able to protect themselves from harm but maybe unable to do so because of an accident, disability, frailty, addiction or illness.
Minds United Football Club adheres to following the six key principles that underpin safeguarding work (See Care Act guidance)
Minds United Football Club will not tolerate the abuse of adults in staff and volunteers should ensure that their work reflects the principles above and ensure the adult with care and support needs is involved in their decisions and informed consent is obtained. Minds United Football Club should ensure that the safeguarding action agreed is the least intrusive response to the risk. Partners from the community should be involved in any safeguarding work in preventing, detecting and reporting neglect and abuse. Minds United Football Club should be transparent and accountable in delivering safeguarding actions.
What is Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP)?
MSP means a case should be person-led and outcome-focused. The individual should be involved in identifying how best to respond to their safeguarding situation by giving them more choice and control as well as improving quality of life, wellbeing and safety.
Minds United Football Club will not tolerate the abuse of adults, Minds United Football Club will ensure that adults are involved in their safeguarding arrangements and each individual is dealt with on a case by case basis. As adults may have different preferences, histories and life styles, the same process may not work for all.
Who do adult safeguarding duties apply to?
The Care Act 2014 sets out that adult safeguarding duties apply to anyadult who:
Who do I go to if I am concerned?
The named responsible person for safeguarding duties for Minds United Football Club is Tarik Kaidi.
All staff and volunteers should contact Tarik for any concerns/queries they have in regards to safeguarding adults. A log of the concern must be kept.
Tarik Kaidi will be responsible to make decisions about notifying adult social services if required and consider alternative actions, where necessary.
Tarik Kaidi will also ensure that the safeguarding adults policies and procedures are in place and up to date. Tarik will ensure a safe environment is promoted for staff and volunteers and adults accessing the service. Tarik Kaidi will ensure they are up to date with their safeguarding adults training.
What should I do if I am concerned?
Staff and volunteers at Minds United Football Club who have any adult safeguarding concerns should:
- Take emergency action if someone is at immediate risk of harm/in need of urgent medical attention. Dial 999 for emergency services
- Get brief details about what has happened and what the adult would like done about it, but do not probe or conduct a mini-investigation
- Seek consent from the adult to take action and to report the concern. Consider whether the adult may lack capacity to make decisions about their own and other people’s safety and wellbeing. If you decide to act against their wishes or without their consent, you must record your decision and the reasons for this.
- Name the person to whom staff/volunteers need to report any potential safeguarding concerns. This will usually be the organisation’s designated safeguarding lead (see above)
The safeguarding lead will record safeguarding concerns on a spreadsheet and refer individuals seeking support to the relevant qualified professional or contact RBKC social services on 02073613013.
- As far as possible, records should be written contemporaneously, dated and signed.
4. Keep records about safeguarding concerns confidential and in a location where the alleged abuser will not have access to the record. Access should not be given to any unauthorised personal for accessing confidential information including the sharing of passwords.
In making a decision whether to refer or not, the designated safeguarding lead should take into account:
(1) the adult’s wishes and preferred outcome
(2) whether the adult has mental capacity to make an informed decision about their own and others’ safety
(3) the safety or wellbeing of children or other adults with care and support needs
(4) whether there is a person in a position of trust involved
(5) whether a crime has been committed
This should inform the decision whether to notify the concern to the following people:
o the police if a crime has been committed and/or
o RBKC Social services for possible safeguarding enquiry
o relevant regulatory bodies such as Care Quality Commission, Ofsted, Charities commission
o service commissioning teams
o family/relatives as appropriate (seek advice from adult social services)
The designated safeguarding lead should keep a record of the reasons for referring the concern or reasons for not referring.
Incidents of abuse may be one-off or multiple and may affect one person or more. Staff and volunteers should look beyond single incidents to identify patterns of harm. Accurate recording of information will also assist in recognising any patterns.
As soon as Adult Social Services becomes involved, a 4-stage safeguarding adults process is followed. For more information about this 4-stage safeguarding adults process, refer to the London Safeguarding Adults Procedures.
What are your roles and responsibilities?
All staff, management, trustees and volunteers at Minds United Football Club are expected to report any concerns to the named person for safeguarding. If the allegation is against one of Minds United Football Club members, volunteers, trustees or directors, seek advice from Minds United Football Club safeguarding lead Tarik Kaidi If the allegation is against the safeguarding lead, seek advice from RBKC Social services firstname.lastname@example.org .
The designated safeguarding adults lead should be responsible for providing acknowledgement of the referral and brief feedback to the person raising the original concern. Feedback should be given in a way that will not make the situation worse or breach the Data Protection Act. If the police are involved, they should be consulted prior to giving feedback to the referrer to ensure any criminal investigation is not affected.
The local authority will decide on who will lead on a safeguarding enquiry should it progress to that stage. The named organisation should not conduct its own safeguarding enquiry unless instructed to do so by the local authority.
Staff and volunteers should ensure that the adult with care and support needs is involved at all stages of their safeguarding enquiry ensuring a person-centred approach is adopted.
Why is it important to take action?
It is may be difficult for adults with care and support needs to protect themselves and to report abuse. They rely on you to help them.
Confidentiality and information sharing
Minds United Football Club expects all staff, volunteers, trustees to maintain confidentiality at all times. In line with Data Protection law, Minds United Football Club does not share information if not required.
It should however be noted that information should be shared with authorities if an adult is deemed to be at risk of immediate harm. Sharing the right information, at the right time, with the right people can make all the difference to preventing harm. For further guidance on information sharing and safeguarding see: https://www.scie.org.uk/care-act-2014/safeguarding-adults/sharing-information/keymessages.asp
Recruitment and selection
Minds United Football Club is committed to safe employment. Safe recruitment practices, such as Disclosure and Barring checks reduce the risk of exposing adults with care and support needs to people unsuitable to work with them.
Training, awareness raising and supervision?
Minds United Football Club ensures that the safeguarding lead will receive awareness training on safeguarding adults as they may come across adults with care and support needs who may be at risk of abuse. All staff and volunteers should be clear about the core values of Minds United Football Club and commitment to safeguarding adults and will be given this policy to read.
It is also useful to discuss training needs with staff and volunteers regarding this policy.
Radicalisation and extremism of adults with care and support needs is a form of emotional/psychological exploitation. Radicalisation can take place through direct personal contact, or indirectly through social media.
If staff are concerned that an adult with care and support needs is at risk of being radicalised and drawn into terrorism, they should treat it in the same way as any other safeguarding concern.

You should ask the person if you are unsure about their well-being as there may be other explanations to the above presentation.
Who abuses and neglects adults?
Abuse can happen anywhere, even in somebody’s own home. Most often abuse takes place by others who are in a position of trust and power. It can take place whether an adult lives alone or with others. Anyone can carry out abuse or neglect, including:
Raising a safeguarding concern
- How does the adult wish for the concern to proceed
- What changes/support would they like as a result of this concern being raised?
This policy is reviewed every 2 year by our board members to ensure that it is achieving its objectives.
