Safeguarding Commitment

The affiliation process for 2017/2018 will include a Safeguarding Commitment Statement and every Association with representative teams, through their Association Secretary, will need to read and accept it on behalf of their Association committee. This will be the last stage of the affiliation process.

The safeguarding commitment will require confirmation of the following:

Associations will ensure that the data we have on your rep team managers and coaches is accurate and kept up to date

That they understand that every rep team manager and coach requires an FA DBS and they will have one processed through the FA every 3 years

That all those AOTTs in ‘team officials’ roles (e.g. coaches, managers, first aiders, referees and drivers) will attend the FA’s Safeguarding Children Workshop (or if they have done the 3 hour workshop, then they complete the free online recertification course.)

That there is a designated member of staff for each team with responsibility for First Aid

Association Secretaries must be fully aware of what is required and they will make this commitment on behalf of the committee prior to affiliation
