Safeguarding Children in Football - guidance for parents and carers
The FA is asking every parent/carer with a child involved in football to take a few minutes to watch the video (above). It outlines what you should expect from your club and how you can play your part in safeguarding your child.
We are asking you to:
Ensure you know who your child’s coach/manager is, how they will communicate with you, how you can contact them and how to get feedback on your child - ask if they are FA DBS checked and safeguarding trained
Put the CWO name and contact details in your phone/notebook - ensure you and your child understand their role
Be clear about acceptable and unacceptable behaviour at your child’s club - sign up and adhere to their codes of conduct
Ask your child what they enjoy about playing - and remember this when supporting them!
Agree with your child how you will support/check-in to see how they are doing
Ensure your child understands their rights - find out more
Ensure you and your child know how to report a concern - find out more
Encourage your child to speak to you about anything that worries them, no matter how big or small

MAKE SURE YOU FEEL SAFE AND KNOW YOUR SAFEGUARDING OFFICER
Did you know that every youth football club MUST have a club welfare officer; do you know who your club’s Welfare Officer is?
Ask your football coach or a parent as they are fully trained and ready to you with any problems you may have during your time at the club.
