Safeguarding

At Lewes FC Juniors the welfare of the young people is paramount. Every child or young person who plays or participates in football should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from poor practice and abuse. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in our club. It is mandatory for all coaches, managers and first aiders working with young people under the age of 18 to have in-date certificates for Safeguarding Children, Emergency Aid and an accepted FA Criminal Records Check. Committee members must also have Safeguarding training. To keep young people safe, it is everyone’s responsibility to report concerns whether you are a player, parent, member of the public, a club volunteer, coach, manager or committee member.

Respect is The FA’s programme of activities to combat unacceptable behaviour in our game at every level – on the pitch, and from the sidelines. Addressing unacceptable behaviour was the number one priority emerging from the biggest opinion survey to date of grassroots football in England.
