Safeguarding and Welfare

Kent FA is committed to its responsibilities to safeguarding the welfare of all young people involved in grassroots football

We fully support and appreciate our team of dedicated volunteer Club and League Welfare Officers working towards maintaining a safe and fun environment for young people who play, train, referee and coach.

We strongly believe in ‘listening to children and young people’ and that their views are really important.
