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 FAs such as ourselves in conjunction with leagues and clubs.

Within this section of our website, you will find all the necessary information and policies on safeguarding, social media guidance, local initiatives and details on upcoming courses and workshops to ensure you stay on top of your club or league's safeguarding responsibilities.
