Safeguarding & Welfare
SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY!
The on-going work to make the game as safe and enjoyable as possible is led by The FA, the game’s governing body in this country and is delivered through Liverpool County FA in conjunction with leagues and clubs on Merseyside.
On this page you'll find resources that can assist in making grassroots football safer.
If you have an urgent concern that needs immediate attention outside of our working hours, please contact the NSPCC's 24 hour helpline on 0808 800 5000.
Childline offers free, confidential advice and support whatever your worry, whenever you need help - 0800 1111.
Please remember that if a child or young person is in immediate danger, ALWAYS call 999.
BEST PRACTICE AND GUIDANCE NOTES – THE COMPLETE DIRECTORY

LIVERPOOL COUNTY FA SUPPORTING Eyes Open
Liverpool County FA is delighted and proud to announce our support of Eyes Open – a campaign launched by Merseyside’s Violence Reduction Partnership.
The campaign encourages members of the public to keep their eyes open to the signs of drug gangs grooming our county’s children – and if they see, hear or suspect anything to report in anonymously to Crimestoppers or to obtain advice from Childline.
