Chesterfield FC aims to create an atmosphere where all children feel valued and safe and a place where their welfare is promoted.

Part of the philosophy of Chesterfield FC Community Trust is our commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and adults at risk. We expect all staff, volunteers, participants, any partner agencies or any commissioned service providers to share this commitment.

This commitment extends to the Academy and covers all the Club’s activities including on match days.

Chesterfield FC Community Trust shares our commitment and works to help the club, particularly around adults at risk.
