SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY
Whatever your involvement in football, you have a responsibility to make our game as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone.
This is particularly true if your role as a referee involves officiating matches where children and young people under the age of 18 are playing. It also applies if as you are officiating alongside under-18 referees and assistant referees.
Find out how The FA and CFAs manage safeguarding nationally and locally. You’ll also find detailed information on the game’s safeguarding strategy, and how it applies to you.
