Staffordshire FA and Port Vale FC have partnered up ahead of the Play Safe weekend on 1st & 2nd October.
Play Safe is an ongoing national campaign led by The FA to raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding in football.
The main focus this year is on parents and carers, with two key messages to convey:
• Awareness of the vital safeguarding role parents/carers play in football; and
• Encouragement to take the short, new and free online safeguarding course that’s been created specifically for parents/carers. You can access the course here.
Staffordshire FA representatives will be in attendance at Port Vale’s home fixture against Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday, promoting the importance of the Play Safe weekend.
Supporters will also have the opportunity to take a selfie on our ‘selfie frame’ for a chance to win a special Port Vale prize!
Play Safe is being run in partnership with the NSPCC and has the full backing of the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship. It’s also supported and being run across every other level of the game.
