The PFA takes a pro-active approach to safeguarding the welfare of every child/young person, young player or adult at risk. In order to meet our social, moral and legal responsibilities, we follow guidelines set by the Government and The FA.
If you suspect there is a serious safeguarding risk in football, we urge you to report your concerns to the police, social services or NSPCC immediately.
You should also report this to The FA via firstname.lastname@example.org as The FA is the only governing body in football who can intervene to mitigate risk across the game, including issuing suspensions from football.
If you are a survivor of abuse, you can access support via the PFA Charity’s Survivor Support Advocate.
