Safeguarding and Welfare
SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY
Every child or young person under the age of 18 who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse and this is the responsibility of everyone involved in football.
Cornwall FA recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people by seeking to protect them from physical, sexual or emotional harm and from neglect or bullying. Affiliated football is therefore committed to working to provide a safe environment for all children and young people to participate in the sport to the best of their abilities.
Within this section of our website, you'll find all the necessary policies on safeguarding and welfare, details on how to raise a safeguarding concern and links to available courses and safeguarding guidance.
Parents: If you have a child playing football we recommend you watch this short video.
