The FA Charter Standard Programme supported by McDonald’s
FA CHARTER STANDARD ANNUAL HEALTH CHECKS
Once clubs achieve the FA Charter Standard Award they need to maintain the criteria each season, this is called the FA Charter Standard Annual Health Check.
This will support clubs in:
• Tracking the validity of their voluntary workforce in relation to coach education and welfare
• Identifying their workforce / coach education requirements for the season
The Health Check form presents information held on your club and the volunteers within the club together with asking questions how the club adheres to The FA Charter Standard criteria.
The information gathered year on year will be maintained to help build a greater picture of the volunteer structure at your club so we know what further support you need.
All FA Charter Standard clubs are required to complete and return their Health Check Form to their County FA by the end of March each year. If they have not done so their FA Charter Standard accreditation will be suspended. If a club has not completed their Health Check form or contacted Durham FA by the end of June each year, their accreditation will expire.

SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY
Safeguarding is about doing things the right way, doing things properly. It's about allowing children to enjoy the game without abuse of any kind. That means bullying, physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse or neglect.
