Coach talks to players

Safeguarding children and adults at risk relies on individuals, clubs and leagues working together to:  

  • promote wellbeing 
  • prevent harm and reduce the risk of abuse or neglect
  • respond to any concerns. 

The FA has policies, processes and best practice guidance to help you and your club. These will help protect under 18s and adults at risk. As a coach, you must follow the law and guidance to create ever-safer football environments.
