How to Report Safeguarding Concerns

If you are worried about a child, it’s vital you report your concerns. Doing nothing is not an option.

It’s also important you stay calm, and if any child is present, reassure them they are not to blame. But don’t make promises of confidentiality or outcome.

There are five ways to report a concern:

• To our club Welfare Officer

• To our Cheshire FA Designated Safeguarding Officer

• By emailing The FA Case Management Safeguarding Team at

• If urgent and you cannot contact your club, or County FA Designated Safeguarding Officer, you should call the NSPCC 24 hour helpline on 0808 800 5000

• If it is an emergency because a child or children are at immediate risk, then call the Police or Children’s Social Care in our area.

Your Club Welfare Officers are:

Spencer Griffin - Cheshire Blades 07834066195
