Welfare and Safeguarding Information


Young players can experience pressure on the field, in club situations, in friendships and in all they do beyond the Club. Meeting challenge is something to learn as a young player, but often it can be challenging. If you are a player or parent and want to talk to us about any concerns here in the Club then contact our Welfare and Safeguarding Officer Anna Woodfine who is here to help with any concerns. Please use the Club Contacts directory to message securely through Teamo or contact her via cobham.membership@outlook.com

  • Players can ask parents or their coach to help them contact Anna. 
  • Parents - please do get in touch if you have any concerns about how the club operates with regard to your child's welfare.
