Player Care & Safeguarding

As a Centre our aim is to create a safe, fun and secure environment in relation to our operations within the centre.

We understand our responsibility to help young people and to safeguard them from poor practice, bullying and abuse.

All individuals within the operations of the Performance Centre have a key role and a responsibility to help ensure the Safety and Welfare of all in our charge. All the staff at the Centre adhere to our safeguarding policy and undergo Safeguarding training as well as a full DBS check.

We will always promote Safeguarding and Welfare as a highest priority and do everything that can be reasonably be expected by protecting all children and Young Persons from harm. It is our duty to act if it is suspected that a child or young person is at risk of being harmed or at risk of harm.

Our Role In

Aston Villa
Football Club

"Aston Villa Football Club see the Gloucester Elite Performance Centre as a key foundation stone in their long term strategy of player development. Having worked with the centre for a number of years I have personal experience of the quality of the programme on offer. It has had great success in recruiting and developing  professional football players. Our football club is committed to developing our own home grown first team players who can follow in the footsteps of Jack Grealish and Jacob Ramsey and we believe that the Gloucester Elite Performance Centre can play a pivotal role in achieving this."
