safeguarding weekend

Tell us how your club promotes safeguarding

And be in with a chance to win tickets to NUFC v Bournemouth!

National Safeguarding Weekend will take place over the weekend of 17/18 September 2022, with The FA asking the football world to come together to promote the importance of safeguarding in the sport.


To mark the occasion, we'd like clubs to share their safeguarding best practice with us. Tell us how safeguarding is embedded within your club and how this is communicated to club officials, volunteers, parents and children. Have you shared a specific message to parents or children about how to raise concerns? Or maybe directed them to support available to them locally? Do you have a specific way of safely managing communication in your club?


We ask that you share your best practice through this form:  (National Safeguarding Weekend (


The very best example of best practice will win two tickets to Newcastle United v Bournemouth on Saturday 17 September 2022. These could be used by club volunteers or passed on to a child or family within the club. 

Entries will close on Friday 02 September 2022 and the winner of the tickets will be contacted the following week.
