Safeguarding & Welfare

Building a safe and inclusive environment for all


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 Such As Ourselves In Conjunction With Leagues And Clubs.

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'll find all the necessary information and policies on safeguarding and welfare, social media guidance, local initiatives and details on upcoming courses and workshops to ensure you stay on top of your club or leagues safeguarding responsibilities.


safeguarding & Welfare FAQ's

If you are querying a record we would need to have full details of the individual before searching records. That must include full birth name, as well the name they are known as now, address, DOB as well as any previous addresses. You will need to speak to the individual to find out this information.

You can register your Club for Online Criminal Records Checks by sending an e-mail to stating that you wish to register for online checks.

We can only process a Criminal Records Check if you are going to join the FA Licensed Coaches club. Details of how to do this can be found on our coaches page.
