Dear club member,
I am sure you are aware of recent media coverage of the child abuse issues surrounding football. This is a very sensitive and highly important subject. Please note and be reassured that FC Lakeside continually work very hard to safeguard our children playing football.
As a club member, you will be aware that we hold the FA Charter Standard, which means we must meet FA criteria annually. We must constantly DBS check (disclosure and barring service), managers/coaches and club officials.
FC Lakeside has a child welfare officer within the club structure who holds an official club management role with us.
We wish to bring to your attention the NSPCC contact number which is 0800 0232642
Also please note that the FA have asked for extra vigilance with regards to our safeguarding and our club procedures.
FC Lakeside is confident we do this, however if you have any concerns, please contact the FA through firstname.lastname@example.org
