Safeguarding - The 4 Steps
As part of The FA’s role in aiming to do everything it can to support a safe and enjoyable framework for football, a new film has been made outlining the four key steps to safeguarding. The film explains how both parents and children can raise concerns they have about adults working in football and focuses around how the 8,500 safeguarding officers working across England football take the following four steps
Checked – to ensure adults are suitable to work with youngsters.
Trained – from coaches to referees, all are given suitable safeguarding training.
Hear – concerns from both children and adults will be listened to
Report – the importance of raising concerns about a child’s welfare.
Following these simple but crucial steps means that there is a framework in place to ensure that, if standards ever fall short with poor practice or unacceptable behaviour, they can be addressed.
