Child Safeguarding

Ignite Sport UK’s three hour workshops are designed to raise awareness on safeguarding issues and enable the participants to deliver a safer, more enjoyable environment in football.

The workshop covers the following topics:
  • The FA’s commitment to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults in football
  • Examples of best practice and abuse
  • Recognising the signs, indicators and forms of abuse and their impact on children
  • Identifying behaviour that would give cause for concern
  • What action to take if you are worried about the welfare of a child or vulnerable adult
The following people should attend:
  • Coaches, medics and referees
  • Club Welfare Officers and assistants (mandatory for future affiliations)
  • Committee members who make decisions on child issues within their club/league

The FA Safeguarding Children Workshop is normally included in the referee and level 1 coaching course. The certificate gained from the FA Safeguarding Children Course is valid for 3 years.
