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-18s in a physical or verbal way you believe is threatening or makes the young person feel scared or bad.
Find out more and watch a short film The FA has produced explaining how to report your concerns. Of course, everything is completely confidential.
You can also contact London FA's Designated Safeguarding Officer, Yasmin Dyer.
HOW WE HANDLE REPORTED CONCERNS
If you have any concerns regarding the about the welfare of a child or the behaviour of an adult towards a child or young person under 18 years of age in football, please make sure you report it as soon as possible.
As a County FA we have trained staff who have experience in dealing with these concerns and can ensure the necessary action is taken. Even If a concern doesn't meet the criteria and standard required for county involvement, advice will be given to clubs on how to investigate the issue internally using their club's policies, procedures and constitution. All concerns are treated confidentially.
