Play Safe: A new national safeguarding campaign from the Football Association and the NSPCC to focus attention on the vital importance of safeguarding in football. At the heart of the campaign are three short films to emphasise the importance of safeguarding for key groups of people, crucially children themselves.
One aspect of the campaign is prompting parents to ask questions:
- Do you know your child’s club Welfare Officer?
- If so, do you have their telephone number in your phone, as well as that of the NSPCC?
- Are you up to speed with your child’s club’s safeguarding policies and procedures?
- Do you regularly check-in with your child to see what they are enjoying/not enjoying and why?
