The FA wants to do everything it can to create a sustainable safe and enjoyable framework of all football clubs. And the Hernhill Herons fully support this.
Anyone who has a concern about the welfare of a child or the behaviour of an adult towards a child or young person under 18 years of age in football is required to refer it to The FA Safeguarding team. The team is staffed by professionals who are experienced in dealing with child welfare.
If you have a concern and would like to discuss any issues with the Heron's Child Welfare Officer, please contact Graeme Southern: email@example.com
Referring a concern can also be done via the Faversham and District League or Kent FA. Both have a Designated Safeguarding Officer (DSO), trained by The FA.
Alternatively, you can email The Football Association directly via firstname.lastname@example.org
If the matter is urgent and you cannot contact your club or County FA Designated Safeguarding Officer, you can call The FA/NSPCC 24-hour helpline on 0808 800 5000 – or if it is an emergency because a child or children are at immediate risk, then call the Police or Children’s Social Care in your area.
Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. No action is not an option.
