Voice of the Child
SPEAKING TO DERBYSHIRE's YOUNG PEOPLE
We are committed to providing a fun and safe environment.
As part of this commitment, we have an ongoing 'Voice of the Child' project, ensuring that children involved in football across the county are given regular opportunities to express what they like, dislike, want and need.
The feedback we receive is crucial to our business strategy and plays a vital role in paving the way for the work we do.
Some of our most valuable 'Voice of the Child' work has included:
- 'I wish they would just let me play', reporting safeguarding concerns poster;
- 'Safe Sid', official Derbyshire FA mascot;
- Young referee focus groups, leading to the Yellow Armband campaign;
On this page, you can see an overview of some key pieces of our 'Voice of the Child' work, along with information about how you can get involved.

YOUNG PEOPLE'S SURVEY
In March 2021 we conducted a survey of almost 500 young people, including players under the age of 18 and refrees under the age of 25.
The aim of the survey was to understand how young people had been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and how we could ensure they had a positive experience upon return to grassroots football.
