We (West Riding FA) recognise our responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people and are accountable for meeting a number of Safeguarding Standards across the business.
One of those is to ensure that any individual who works on behalf of West Riding FA, either in a voluntary or paid capacity, meets the necessary Safeguarding requirements for their position.
In this instance, you are required to have the following in place;
1. An In date FA DBS (dated within the last 3 years)
2. An in date Safeguarding Children qualification (dated within the last 2 years)
3. In receipt of the West Riding FA Written Annual Safeguarding Briefing
We are really passionate about ensuring that each individual that wishes to take part in football across West Riding, can do so in a safe and enjoyable environment.
As well ensuring you meet the compliance requirements for your role, there are a number of other items that we would like to bring to your attention that will hopefully support you in your role (such as reporting mechanisms / policies) and also allow you to access further Safeguarding training opportunities to ensure you are up to date with the latest requirements.
