The North Lanarkshire Child Protection Committee is working in partnership with the players and staff at Motherwell Football Club’s youth academy to raise awareness about what we can all do to help keep children and young people safe.
We can all play our part by helping to make our communities safe nurturing places for all children to grow up in. Listening to what children say to us and taking any worries they have seriously helps children feel valued and respected and encourages them to speak up if they don’t feel safe.
The long-established partnership sees the youth academy continue to back the child protection message by displaying the Child Protection Committee logo on their tops throughout the season.
The club also display prominent child protection messages around Fir Park, as well as information on how to report concerns. Motherwell will also promote important child protection messages through their social media and digital channels.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership between our academy and the Child Protection Committee,” Suzanne Reid, Head of Commercial & Marketing at Motherwell FC, said.
"The particular focus this year will be on keeping children safe online, especially in the area of social media.
"Our first team and academy players and coaches will work to spread the message of internet safety across our local area.”
