Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility it is therefore essential that clubs have the correct processes and procedures in place to ensure children are able to take part in football in a safe, fun and enjoyable environment.


The FA have a simple three part approach to help everyone

These are:
• Getting the right people involved - carrying out references and CRB checks

• Creating a safe environment - codes of conduct, education and best practice

• Promoting clear systems to deal with any concerns, policy and procedures
