Safeguarding remains our key priority and we continue to ensure that it is embedded across all of our activities.
An integral part of this is ensuring that a child focused approach is at the heart of all that we do.
To achieve this, we will:
- Ensure that we continue to achieve The FA’s safeguarding operating standards
- Continue to support club welfare officers to ensure that the grassroots game is safe
- Increase the number of validation visits within the grassroots game
- Listening to the voice of young people is key to ensuring we have a game that is safe for all participants. We will continue to work with our Youth Council in developing this area.
