The lifeblood of grassroots football

There's no grassroots football without volunteers.

It simply wouldn't be possible without the hard work, dedication and passion of the often unsung heroes of the beautiful game.

It's important for us here at Lancashire FA to not only support and guide our existing volunteers, but to help attract new ones.

That way, football in the county will continue to flourish.

Here you'll find plenty of advice and assistance for the football volunteers of Lancashire, as well as ways to increase your involvement in the grassroots game.

Safeguarding and Welfare


Whatever your involvement in football, you have a responsibility to make our game as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone.

This is particularly true if your role as a volunteer involves working or being with children and young people under the age of 18.
