he Scottish FA can confirm the appointment of Jackie Brock as Chair of the Independent Wellbeing and Protection Advisory Board (IWPAB), a key recommendation of the Interim Report from the Review of Sexual Abuse in Scottish Football.

As Chief Executive of Children in Scotland, the national charity working to improve children’s lives, Jackie has experience in providing trusted and independent support on diverse and varied issues affecting children, families and those who support them. In 2015, she was commissioned by the Scottish Government to write The Brock Report, an independent review of Scotland’s system for safeguarding Scotland’s vulnerable children.



Prior to Children in Scotland, Jackie was the Depute Director of Learning and Support at the Scottish Government. She is also a non-executive director of Healthcare Improvement Scotland.

The appointment of the IWPAB is a commitment to the implementation of the recommendations of the Independent Review published by Martin Henry, the independent chair, and the broad skillset and experience of the board will ensure a widespread approach to reinforcing child wellbeing and protection across the national game.

Jackie Brock said: “I am proud to have been asked to chair such a high-calibre independent board to ensure a robust and diligent approach to wellbeing and protection matters across Scottish football.

“The board is committed to ensuring the highest standards of protection and wellbeing through working collectively across the game and with external stakeholders as well as monitoring continuous improvement.

Ian Maxwell, Scottish FA Chief Executive, said: “The calibre, experience and knowledge of the individuals within the Independent Wellbeing and Protection Advisory Board is commensurate with the importance of the group to advising and guiding Scottish football in our work.

“Individually, each member provides valuable experience and insight that will help Scottish football safeguard the wellbeing of all children and young people involved in the game to the highest standard.”

I cannot view anything supposedly neutral in Scottish football without absolute cynicism. Hopefully this group proves me wrong. It is imperative that the enquiry is given the remit to leave no stone unturned, the resources to ensure full coverage is possible and there can be no putting agendas over justice. The victims deserve justice and the perpetrators and those who facilitated their evil crimes, are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Should that not read, " ... will finally - after decades of neglect - help Scottish football safeguard the wellbeing of all children and young people involved in the game."

I read that announcement, and all I can picture is a fig leaf.

Quite frankly I don’t trust the SFA to appoint an impartial and non biased group to investigate the safety of our children

The SFA have known about these allegations at Parkpaed for decades and done nothing to protect or punish the guilty parties

The SFA couldn’t punish us quick enough for financial mismanagement

This canal requires an in-depth analysis of their backgrounds and allegiances

Am I missing something here? Where does it say they are looking into historical events? Ok fine if they are setting this up but it doesn’t really change things going forward on an inquiry into past abuses and coverups. And I also don’t want the corrupt SFA anywhere near it. And am I right in saying flannigan supports that lot? Personally I don’t think this changes anything as it’s an investigation into historical events that’s required.

Nothing to do with investigating the goings-on at Parkhead by the looks of it. But a good thing nonetheless.
