What is The FA Charter Standard

The FA Charter Standard helps clubs develop policies and practices to provide football in a safe environment and is fun and open to everyone. 

This is your reassurance, that we do everything we can to keep your child safe. 

To achieve the FA Charter Standard the club must:
  • Have a trained Welfare Officer
  • Run DBS, for all volunteers and ensure they are current
  • Ensure all volunteers are Safeguarding trained
  • Have emergency aid-trained volunteers
  • Provide a minimum of one FA Level One coach
  • Have appropriate club administration in place
  • Be signed-up to the FA Respect programme
