We are committed to our responsibilities in safeguarding the welfare of all young people involved in grassroots football
We fully support and appreciate our team of dedicated volunteer Club and League Welfare Officers working towards maintaining a safe and fun environment for young people who play, train, referee and coach.
We strongly believe in ‘listening to children and young people’ and that their views are really important. We encourage young people to visit our Kidzone pages.
Within this section of our website, you'll find all the necessary information, policies and guidance relating to safeguarding and welfare to ensure you stay on top of your club or leagues safeguarding responsibilities.
To help with your questions or to report concerns please contact our designated safeguarding team, details of which can be found at the foot of this page.
If you have an urgent safeguarding concern then please call The FA / NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000 - or if it is an emergency because a child or children are at immediate risk, then call the Police or Children's Social Care in your area. For more details on reporting concerns, please visit the '2: Reporting Concerns' section below.
