Player Safeguarding

By reporting a concern you can help make sure that the youth game stays safe and strong. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.  Non-action is not an option.

If you have a concern about the welfare of your child or the behaviour of an adult towards your child we can help put you in touch with the relevant authorities.  

You can also refer it to The FA Safeguarding team.

Player Trafficking

If you are coming from outside the UK we can also advise you if you are a victim of player trafficking. There are an increasing number of players who are falling victim to this injustice.

This trade is particularly bad between African nations and European clubs.  Untrustworthy agents take advantage of players by enticing them over to Europe with promises of top football only to be disapointed when they arrive at the academies and find out they are not welcome. The agent disappears and they have nowhere else to go often ending up on the streets.

To avoid this happening to you we can help verify legitimate invites and give you guidance on academy trials and procedures to make sure you are not being misled.  

If you are already a victim of this we can also help so please get in touch.
