Safeguarding and Welfare

Helping keep others safe in football in Lancashire

The safety and well-being of all under-18 participants in the county is of utmost importance to us.

Our fantastic Safeguarding team strives to ensure that children involved in grassroots football in Lancashire are protected and happy while playing the beautiful game.

They are always on hand to answer any queries or help address any issues.

From here you will have access to advice and guidance on a range of subjects, such as Criminal Record Checks, reporting concerns, social media and inclusion.

We want to help clubs in Lancashire create a safe environment for their young players, so please get in touch if you need our assistance.

Are you concerned about your welfare or the welfare of someone else? Then take a look at the National Crime Agency's CEOP page here.
