Keeping Football Safe

Keeping Football Safe and Enjoyable

The FA has released a document entitled ‘Keeping Football Safe and Enjoyable’, which outlines the safeguarding work being done right across football.

The document can be found at It unpicks and explains the work being done in this field by different organisations in the game to keep children and young people safe. It also highlights ways to report concerns, and details further work that has been undertaken since the disclosure of historical sexual abuse claims in November 2016.

If you have a concern about a child, or need some advice, please contact the Shropshire FA Designated Safeguarding Officer, Victoria Vespa on : 01743 362769 - Option 4 or 07918764766. Email
