Safeguarding Children







2.5 million children aged 10 - 17 play organised football each week.

An additional 1.5 million children play football irregularly. Up to 750,000 adults are involved with these young players.

The Football Association, the National Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and Essex County FA recognise that the game has a duty towards children, defined as those under 18 years of age, who enjoy playing football.

Club Welfare Officer

Additionally, Writtle Minors FC has a Club Welfare Officer who has completed the FA's Child Protection and Best Practice Workshops and the Welfare Officers course.

The Club Welfare Officer, or 'CWO', should be the first point of contact for anyone connected to the club (staff, volunteers, parents/guardians and children) who has any concern about any aspect of child welfare and/or about poor practices.

In the event of a concern being raised, the CWO will liaise directly with a County Football Association Child Protection Officer to discuss and agree an appropriate plan of action to investigate and resolve the matter.

Writtle Minors' Club Welfare Officer is:

Natalie Brooks
Tel - 07449 587079
