HOW WE HANDLE REPORTED CONCERNS.
If you have any concerns regarding the 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, please make sure you report it as soon as possible.
As a County FA we have trained staff who have experience in dealing with these concerns and can ensure the necessary action is taken. Even If a concern doesn't meet the criteria and standard required for county involvement, advice will be given to clubs on how to investigate the issue internally using their club's policies, procedures and constitution. All concerns are treated confidentially.
