Wapping Youth FC fully recognises its responsibilities for protecting and safeguarding the welfare of all children and vulnerable adults. We recognise our responsibility to take all reasonable steps to promote safe practice and to protect children and vulnerable adults from harm, abuse and exploitation. Our policies apply to all staff, trustees and volunteers working in the centre. A child is defined as a person under the age of 18. A vulnerable adult is defined as a person aged 18 or above who is, or may be, in need of community care services because of mental disability or other disability, age or illness and who is, or who may be, unable to take care of themselves or unable to protect themselves against significant harm or exploitation.

Wapping Youth FC are proud users of TAGPAY, a tech tool that helps to manage large communities of people in sports clubs. Our goal is to bring people together using data and wearable technology. TAGPAY want to increase overall safety and efficiency of everyday administrative issues, bringing the sport into the digital age.
Safeguarding players, especially young players, was at risk because of these old methods. There was often nothing to show when a player left or arrived at the club for training or a match, or no way of their parent knowing if they arrived and left safely if they traveled alone. If there was any logging of this it was done on paper, which could easily be lost, damaged or even stolen.
TAGPAY is about reducing the admin time sports staff spend today on registrations, payments, player information and club communication, and helping to move sport into the digital age. TAGPAY was also designed to improve the safeguarding methodologies within a given sports club by inputting simple automated processes, such as the e-registration tool.
