SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY!
REPORTING A CONCERN
A child or young person may inform you directly that he or she is concerned about someone’s behaviour towards them or you may become aware, through your own observations or through a third party, of possible abuse occurring.
There are five ways to report a concern:
- To your Club Welfare Officer – please find out from your club who these people are;
- By emailing The FA Safeguarding Team at Safeguarding@TheFA.com or by calling and asking for the team on 0800 169 1863;
- If urgent and you cannot contact your club, league or County FA Designated Safeguarding Officer, you should call the NSPCC 24-hour helpline on 0808 800 5000;
- If it is an emergency because a child or children are at immediate risk, then call the Police (999) or Children’s Social Care in your area.
Any adult or young person with concerns about a colleague’s conduct towards a child or young person can also use whistle-blowing by calling 0800 169 1863 and asking for The FA’s safeguarding team, or via email to Safeguarding@TheFA.com
Childline offers free, confidential advice and support whatever your worry, whenever you need help – 0800 1111.
Please remember that if a child or young person is in immediate danger, ALWAYS call 999.
