It is important for the club that we offer an environment that is safe for all our members. If you feel that either yourself or a fellow club member may be in the need of support, are in danger or may be being put in situations that are not right please report these issues to the club Welfare and Safeguarding Officer John Hunt.

Our safeguarding policy is below, and you can contact John directly on the link below.



Corby Town TTC commits to its duty of care to safeguard and protect the welfare of children and adults at risk and is committed to ensuring good practice throughout the club.

It recognises that the welfare of the child is paramount and aims to promote a positive and enjoyable experience for all whilst focusing on a child centred safe environment.
