FA Safeguarding Parents Leaflet
If you want to play your part then we would encourage you to ask your
child’s club the following questions:
Is my child’s coach Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked, FA trained and qualified?
How can I get a copy of the clubs safeguarding policy and procedures?
Who is the Club Welfare Officer (CWO) for my child’s team and how do I contact them?
What is the role of the CWO?
What should I do if I have a complaint?
If I have a concern about a child or someone’s behaviour towards a child what should I do?
