Saturday 30th Sept/Sunday 1st October
At the end of this month, English football at every level will unite to promote Play Safe – a national campaign to focus attention on the vital importance of safeguarding in our national game.
Led by The Football Association, the Play Safe campaign is endorsed by the NSPCC and supported by every level of the game, including the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League, and Barclays Women’s Championship, and right across the grassroots game.
We are proud to be supporting Play Safe on our website and by making an online Play Safe Pledge. Our pledge will see our team captains wearing Play Safe armbands and coaches & managers will be wearing pins/badges.
Of course, safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, so if you haven’t already, why not make your own Play Safe Pledge? We encourage you to do so.
This year’s Play Safe weekend has two main messages:
- ‘Everyone, everywhere, every time’ should have an understanding of safeguarding in football;
- Everyone should ‘watch, listen, talk and act’ if they have any safeguarding concerns.
If you have a safeguarding concern or would like some advice you’ll find lots of useful links and contact details for our safeguarding team on our welfare page.
Together, let’s create an ever-safer culture across the game we all love.
