Help Keep Our Game Safe

As part of our commitment to safeguarding we have produced a useful guide for you.

Every child or vulnerable person who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in a enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in football.

Manchester FA have produced the following leaflet and poster to provide our grassroots community with the knowledge and confidence to recognise abuse and know how to report it.

We have printed the leaflets and poster (in A3 format) for our members. All Child Welfare Officers and Coaches will receive these via their clubs and leagues over the coming weeks and by the start of the 2018/19 season we will ensure every parent and child in our grassroots community has access to the leaflet.

Please contact if you wish to collect these from our offices or have them delivered to you by a member of our staff.

Since I joined Manchester FA my main aim has been to provide our grassroots community with the relevant information to safeguard our young players and referees that is in a useful format.
