Safeguarding and Welfare
SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and at Kent FA, we take safeguarding extremely seriously. It is the responsibility of everyone involved in football including parents and carers, coaches and spectators.
Kent FA recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children, young people and adults at risk by seeking to protect them from all forms of abuse and poor practice. We are therefore committed to working to provide and promote a safe environment for all children and young people to participate in the sport across the county.
Within this section of our website, you'll find all the necessary policies on safeguarding and welfare, details on how to raise a safeguarding concern and links to available courses and safeguarding guidance.
