Safeguarding & Welfare

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility

At Berks & Bucks FA, safeguarding is our number one priority. Keeping young people involved in football in a safe and enjoyable environment will keep people in the game for life. 

Our commitment is to provide safeguarding and welfare support and guidance to our army of volunteers working within grassroots football and to provide compliance support to the FA to assist in creating the right environment for young people in football.
