Safeguarding and Welfare

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.

SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY! 

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 and is delivered through London FA in conjunction with leagues and clubs in the capital.

On this page you'll find resources that can assist in making grassroots football safer.

If you have an urgent concern that needs immediate attention outside of our working hours, please contact the NSPCC's 24 hour helpline on 0808 800 5000.

Please remember that if a child or young person is in immediate danger, ALWAYS call 999.

Criminal Record Checks (CRC) in Football

The FA requires those working in eligible roles with children and young people to pass a criminal records check. This is in line with legislation and government guidance and is standard practice.
