SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY
Everyone in football has a responsibility to make our game safe and enjoyable.
This is particularly true for coaches. A coach is in a privileged position. The nature of the role means he/she can have significant influence over children and young people and develop relationships of trust with children and their parents/carers. It’s therefore important that coaches understand their safeguarding responsibilities.
