IT'S EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY
If you feel that an adult connected to your league or club (e.g. a referee, coach or a volunteer) is mistreating someone under the age of 18, there are various confidential ways you can report this.
By ‘mistreating’, we mean behaving towards under 18's in a physical or verbal way you believe is threatening or makes the young person feel scared or bad.
If the matter is urgent and you cannot contact your club or County FA designated safeguarding officer, you can call The NSPCC 24-hour helpline on 0808 800 5000 – or if it is an emergency because a child or children are at immediate risk, then call the police or children’s social care in your area.
We want you to feel confident in football and to know that your child will have fun and be safe.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Non-action is not an option.
