A general reminder that all youth clubs’ Chairpersons, Secretaries, Treasurers and Welfare Officers must complete the online FA Safeguarding for Committee Members course in order for the club to affiliate. This mandatory free course will take approximately 40 minutes and will be valid for 5 years on an individual’s record.
More information on this course and access to it can be found via https://help.thefa.com/support/solutions/articles/7000041379-how-do-i-access-the-fa-safeguarding-for-committee-members-course
Please note that the content is specific to the role of a committee member and as such, you will be required to complete this even if you have an in date Safeguarding Children certificate. The affiliation will not be approved until these are in place. For all queries relating to Safeguarding please contact our Designated Safeguarding Officer, Daniel.Taylor@DurhamFA.com
