Child Welfare

SSCFA recognises our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people by protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional harm as well as from neglect and bullying.

We are determined to meet our obligations to ensure that those schools and organisations providing football opportunities for children and young people do so, to the highest possible standard of care. The Association shall adopt, fully adhere to and conform to all the ESFA/FA child welfare policies, procedures and guidelines.

Should you wish to raise or report any concerns regarding this critical area, please contact our Child Welfare Officer, Jan Butler on the following details; or 07984 549304

Concerns can also be raised directly with the FA/NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000 or with The FA by emailing
