Supporters will notice a number of features around The Hawthorns during the matchday, helping to raise awareness of a continued commitment to look after children, young people and adults.

The squad are set to wear special warm-up shirts ahead of kick-off, while a new ‘Baggies Safe’ video message will also be played on the big screens, detailing how fans can report any safeguarding issues.

And the matchday programme, Albion News, will contain an article on the campaign from Head of Safeguarding Lisa Reynolds.

There is a dedicated ‘Baggies Safe’ section on the website, with further information and the club’s policies and procedures all available to view.

Any safeguarding concerns can be immediately reported to the team here.

“We will strive to provide safe and positive activities and environments for everybody who engages with our services and activities, and we’ll ensure that our Strategic Safeguarding Plan, policy framework and approach in practice reflect our commitment to this.
