Our Policies

Wycombe Wanderers Foundation (WWF) are fully committed to health and safety, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people, vulnerable adults, staff and volunteers and EDI. Please see below for access to a number of our key policies, procedures and statements.

Equal Opportunities – Wycombe Wanderers Foundation is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to treating all employees or job applicants with respect and dignity in respect of the 9 Protected Characteristics regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity, race, sexual orientation, religion or belief or because someone is married or in a civil partnership. WWF is a charity committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion, and the recruitment process for any role within the organisation will adhere to the latest equality legislation.

Safer Recruitment – WWF recognises the need to identify, deter or reject job applicants who it considers might/be at risk of abusing children, young people or vulnerable adults.

As part of the Foundation’s recruitment and selection process, offers of work for positions which involve regular contact with children, young people or vulnerable adults are subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check and appropriate references.

Where the position is either unlikely to or may include only infrequent contact with children or young people, the Foundation still requires an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check or self-certification and appropriate references.

WWF will ensure that the recruitment process for any position within the organisation includes the following:

1. The Job advert makes reference to an understanding of Safeguarding and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

2. An Application Form – which requires experience of Safeguarding and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, to be recorded and stored.

3. An Interview with applicants that includes an emphasis and questions on Safeguarding and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

4. That at least two references, one of which to be sought from the most recent employer, will be sought from the chosen applicant.

5. An enhanced DBS Check

6. The induction training process will includes Safeguarding and Equality, Diversity & Inclusion and a copy of all relevant policies.

All staff already in post, will be required to provide either evidence of a successful enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check or a completed Self-Certification statement.

Staff will update their profile in the Foundation’s HR system to reflect their successful DBS check or Self Certification and evidence will also be uploaded to our Single Central Register.
