Safer Internet Day 2016


Birmingham County FA are pleased to support Safer Internet Day 2016 and endorses all the positive work of UK Safer Internet Centre.

These are some of the ways in which football can play its part:

Leagues, Clubs and Coaches can play their part by showing supporting Safer Internet Day by adding links on League/Club Webpages, Facebook and Twitter and by following The FAs best practice guidance to ensure that club/leagues manage online environments and communications to ensure that they are safe for all involved.

Young players can play their part by being kind and respectful to others online and seek positive and safe opportunities to create, engage and share online. The FA's guidance for U18's can be accessed by clicking here.

Parents and carers can play their part by maintaining an open and honest dialogue with their children about their online lives, by modelling positive online behaviours themselves, and also by reporting any inappropriate or illegal content they find. The FA's guidance for Parents/Carers can be accessed by clicking here.
