Towcester Town Football Club takes the issue of child safeguarding extremely seriously. All our coaches are level 1 qualified, which includes completing a safeguarding course that has to be renewed every three years, and anyone working with the children will have an in-date DBS check.
The FA has released a document called Keeping Football Safe and Enjoyable, which outlines the safeguarding work being done across football. CLICK HERE to download a copy.
Your first port of call for any issues or concerns regarding a child's safety or wellbeing, or if you think you might need to complete a DBS check, should be the club's child welfare officer:
