Here at the Ashley Williams Soccer camp it is not just about football, it is about young people learning and gaining invaluable transferable skills to add to their toolkit to be used in everyday life.
A huge concern parents have disclosed to us and is well documented in the media is young peoples safety online. Here at the Ashley Williams Soccer Camp we fully support CEOP and will teach young people about safety online.
e-Safety is an issue that involves everyone, every child, every young person, every parent and every professional. By its very nature it is an extensive issue subject to a dynamism that demands constant attention and review. Yet this extensive nature can also lead to a multiplicity of messages.
Ashley Williams Soccer Camp LTD has chosen to bring together messages from the key agencies and organisations that have a role in e-safety.
In relation to child safety issues and preventative education more generally, it is well established that promoting safety through one off events, however immediately engaging they may appear to be, is unlikely to be effective in the longer run. Thus, any approach needs to be sustained and well integrated within the curriculum/program and ethos of the organisation.
It is also important that any organisation that may involve themselves in this type of work, have in place appropriate processes and resources to respond appropriately in the event that a child or young person who has been exposed to the materials discloses an experience of sexual or other form of abuse.
Hence the reason for Ashley Williams Soccer Camp working with and fully supporting CEOP on this issue.
