Safeguarding ‘Call To Action’

As of 5th October 2017, we have released a new Safeguarding ‘Call to Action’ document to clubs for the 2017/18 season. It contains a number of minimum standards for clubs to sign up to in regards to the Welfare of players under 18 years old. The document shows what the requirements are and contains useful links that will show your club how to meet each requirement. Once your club meets the requirements, the completed document can be sent to Stuart Thomas so that he may send you a poster that you club can show on your website and/or facilities.
