Safeguarding Resources

The disability team celebrate winning the West Ham Foundation tournament.

We're here to support every club member throughout their time with us.

Our in-house Safeguarding & Welfare team are qualified committee members who liaise with the committee, coaches, players, members, third-party organisations and the Football Association to ensure the safety and welfare of all involved at Lancing Football Club, in particular our players.

Our Safeguarding & Welfare team have enhanced DBS clearance, FA safeguarding training, and training through their own individual careers & experiences also.

Members can contact our team at any time via email or in-person, and our officers are available via phone in an emergency.


Gloria Eveleigh – Safeguarding & Welfare Manager

Gloria joined as Lancing Parish Council Representative at the beginning of the 2017/18 season and now manages the club’s safeguarding responsibilities.

With experience in council leadership, safeguarding consultancy, non-fiction writing and youth services, Gloria ensures we do all we can to meet the requirements of our members.

Gloria oversees safeguarding and is the first point of contact for organisations, and for members requiring support.
