Back Safeguarding Young People

Do we need to have parental consent forms and what should they contain?

Clubs should obtain the following information from their junior (under 18) membership to ensure they can fulfil their duty of care to that young person.

This information should include:

  • The young person’s name, address, contact details Their parent/guardians’ names and contact details
  • Details of medical conditions, medications and a note to parents to update the club if this changes
  • Consent for photography/video – (there may be legal reasons why a young person’s image cannot be taken/published)

Consent should be obtained via GDPR regarding holding personal information. You can refer to the England Hockey Privacy Policy for more information.
