This weekend English football at every level unites to promote Play Safe – a national campaign to focus attention of the vital importance of safeguarding in our national game.
Led by The Football Association, the Play Safe campaign is endorsed by the NSPCC and supported by every level of the game, including the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship, and right across the grassroots game.
We are proud to be supporting Play Safe on our website and social media channels.
FA Chief Executive, Mark Bullingham, said: “We want everyone involved in football – particularly children and young people – to have a safe, positive and enjoyable experience. English football will come together this weekend with leagues and clubs across the country participating in our Play Safe Weekend, taking our Play Safe Pledge to help build awareness and understanding about the importance of safeguarding. We encourage everyone in the game to take part.”
This year’s Play Safe weekend has two main messages:
- ‘Everyone, everywhere, every time’ should have an understanding of safeguarding in football;
- Everyone should ‘watch, listen, talk and act’ if they have any safeguarding concerns.
If you have a safeguarding concern, or would like some advice, the person to contact at Taunton Town is our Welfare Officer Neil White, firstname.lastname@example.org
