FA Safeguarding Children Workshop

Reporting a Safeguarding Concern

KENT FA SEEKS TO DO EVERYTHING IT CAN TO SUPPORT A SAFE AND ENJOYABLE FOOTBALL ENVIRONMENT FOR ALL.

If standards ever fall short with poor practice or unacceptable behaviour, please let us know so we can deal with it. By reporting a concern you can help us make sure that youth football stays safe and fun for all.

Anyone who has a concern about the welfare of a child and/or the behaviour of an adult towards a child or young person under 18 years of age in football is required to refer it to the Kent FA Safeguarding Team.

SAFEGUARDING CASES

If the concern you wish to raise can be categorised as:

Sexual Abuse
Emotional Abuse
Physical Abuse
Neglect
Bullying

You must email safeguarding@thefa.com marking your email URGENT or contact the office on 01622 791850

If your concern involves possible or actual risk of harm to children, you can call The NSPCC 24-hour helpline on 0808 800 5000 – or if it is an emergency because a child or children are at immediate risk, then call the police or children’s social care.

POOR PRACTICE

If your concern DOES NOT involve any of the categories above and DOES NOT involve possible or actual risk of harm to children, you can report it via the poor practice referral form below.
