Two children play in a match

Kids Corner

At Lancashire FA, the most important thing is to ensure all children and young people who play football feel safe and happy.

We have our own team of people whose job is to help you support you, and give you advice to anyone who feels sad, worried, or unhappy or any grown-up worried about a child's well-being. We are here to help

This is a special area of our website for children and young people, helping them to know where to go if they need help and giving some good advice on staying safe.

There are many websites you can visit to help if you feel the need to report something/someone or learn more:

  • Child Exploitation and Online Protection  - You can visit this website to report something or look into what happens when you report something
  • ThinkUKnow - this website is designed for young people to learn more about safety online and offline. There are also a few games to play which also offer helpful advice
