Football is for everyone
The FA and Derbyshire FA are here to ensure everyone who participates has a great experience – regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, ability or disability, faith or age.
In this section you'll find information about; support initiatives and training opportunities to help you improve as a coach, how to be safe in your coaching and the environments you create, as well as how to access on-the-ground support when you need it.
SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY
Everyone in football has a responsibility to make our game safe and enjoyable.
This is particularly true for coaches. A coach is in a privileged position. The nature of the role means he/she can have significant influence over children and young people and develop relationships of trust with children and their parents/carers. It’s therefore important that coaches understand their safeguarding responsibilities.
