Working with Children

Working With Children

Clubs must ensure compliance and record keeping with all employees and volunteers who are involved with child-related work and must comply with relevant legislation with regard to working with children.

All football clubs have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for all participants, this is particularly important for junior clubs to ensure a comprehensive approach to child protection and creating child safe environments.

Responsible football organisations must ensure:

  • All employees or volunteers undergo criminal record screening
  • All employees or volunteers undergo background checks
  • They have in place relevant policies and procedures to ensure children are protected
