Due to Covid-19 and Government Guidance, we have placed the following workshops on hold:
- Safeguarding Children Workshop
- Welfare Officer Workshop
We cannot say when workshops will resume but we will update this page and County FA websites when we have more information.
For more information on staying safe outside your home during the Covid-19 pandemic, please see the latest Government guidance
The FA seeks to build a safe, enjoyable and inclusive environment for all children and young people, whether they are players, young referees or qualified coaches.
To help guide those working with children and young people, The FA provides courses in safeguarding children. Sometimes these are required as part of a qualification e.g. for coaches and referees, however, there are courses suitable for everyone, whatever their role.
All FA safeguarding courses are football-focused and child-centred. They are relevant, engaging and designed to help learners act appropriately and with confidence.
Over 450,000 people have now attended our courses – that’s a lot of people who are more safeguarding-aware and helping make football fun and safe, fun and inclusive.
