Safeguarding at Staffordshire FA
The Staffordshire FA offers a range of safeguarding services and training to help create a safe and enjoyable football experience for everyone.
We ensure safeguarding requirements are met as a requirement of club affiliation and we support clubs to maintain these standards. This includes making unannounced safeguarding visits to clubs.
Here are details of the current safeguarding support services we offer:

Sharing Good Practice
WYRLEY JUNIORS FC - 2016/17 NATIONAL CHARTER STANDARD COMMUNITY CLUB OF THE YEAR
A great piece of work carried our by Chasetown FC has seen the Club provide ID Cards for all coaches and club members working within the youth section of the game. Worn on lanyards and constantly on display, the ID cards highlight how the coach is involved with the club and promotes a professional image in the community.
Support for Welfare Officers
Staffordshire FA are keen to supply its Safeguarding Workforce with a number of CPD opportunities. In order to support the voluntary workforce, a number of Safeguarding Workshops will be held throughout the footballing season.
