We’re backing PLAY SAFE

Do yourself a favour and ask your child what they worry about when they play football. When their worries are enough to make you worry, would you know what to do?

Take the Safeguarding Awareness for Parents and Carers course today - You can access the course here

PLAY SAFE is an ongoing national campaign led by The FA to raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding in football, and the main focus this year is on parents and carers, with two key messages to convey:

1. Awareness of the vital safeguarding role parents/carers play in football.

2. Encouragement to take the short, new and free online safeguarding course that’s been created specifically for parents/carers.

Ultimately, safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. We all need to ensure that everyone involved in football – particularly children and young people – has a consistently safe and positive experience of our great game. PLAY SAFE reminds everyone of that responsibility and keeps safeguarding front of mind, which is exactly where it should be.

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.
