Part of the process includes validation checks being carried out by members of County FA Staff who will have a letter of introduction to identify them.
These visits will occur to a percentage of our affiliated clubs however it is something we may well consider to continue in the future.
Part of the need to know within a Club includes Parents and Coaches being aware of who the Welfare Officer is and their contact details. The Clubs’ Polices & Procedures, Codes of Conduct, FA policies and how to report any concerns regarding Safeguarding.
