Child Welfare

RESPECT is The Football Association’s direct response to a clear message from the grassroots game. We must improve standards of behaviour – on and off the field. Parental behavior is one of the main reasons why young players drop out of the game. Poor behaviour by coaches, parents and players towards referees means that thousands of officials are dropping out each season.

RESPECT is aimed at helping us all to work together to change the negative attitudes and unacceptable behaviour on the sidelines and on the pitch. It’s a long-term commitment. As a Child Welfare Officer you are ensuring that Respect is understood, taken on board by the committee, coaches, members and supporters.

  • Help and support for you
  • Making sure everyone knows who you are
  • Safeguarding children
