Safeguarding And Welfare


English football takes safeguarding extremely seriously. The ongoing work to make the game as safe and enjoyable as possible is led by The FA, the game’s governing body in this country. This work is delivered through County FA’s in conjunction with leagues and clubs such as ourselves.

A clear safeguarding strategy has been put in place by English football to protect people involved in the national game. It is complete with policies, procedures and regulations. Every club in the country must adhere to the policies which apply to them. If not, they face sanctions, including suspension from playing.

Within this section of our website, you will find all the necessary information and policies on safeguarding and welfare.

The FA Has Released A New Document Entitled ‘Keeping Football Safe And Enjoyable’, Which Outlines The Safeguarding Work Being Done Right Across Football. Download A Copy Below.
