It is vital that children are playing football in a safe and positive environment that is free from harm. Please visit FAW Safeguarding for more information




Information on Welfare, Buffer Zones, Code of Conduct and Goalpost Safety

It is everyone's responsibility to safeguard the welfare of children. Those who are working or volunteering directly with children and young people in football need to have an FAW Enhanced Disclosure.


The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) is now known as the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS).


With DBS there are now 2 levels of checks in place (Enhanced check for Regulated Activity and an Enhanced DBS check). To establish which level of check is required for your role and to obtain a DBS application form, please contact your Club Safeguarding Officer.


Football should be a fun, safe and positive experience for every young person involved. For more information on Safeguarding please visit the FAW Safeguarding site. All clubs must have a safeguarding officer.
