At ESG we take the welfare of our girls very seriously. Every single one of our coaches and volunteers complete a safeguarding course with Surrey FA and have a full DBS certificate.

Our Club Welfare Officer is Pauline Ebbutt. Her roles at our club include:

•    Ensuring welfare responsibilities are well understood by everyone involved in the   club

•    Work in partnership with Surrey FA's Welfare Officer

•    Promote the FA’s Respect Programme to help develop best practice processes throughout the club

•    Helping club personnel understand what our duty of care is towards our girls at our club
