Bessacarr FC - Safeguarding Children

Bessacarr FC, Cantley Park, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, DN4 6HR - Email [email protected]

At Bessacarr FC, we take child welfare and safeguarding very seriously.


All our managers/coaches/helpers of youth teams must have an FA accepted in-date criminal records check and safeguarding certificate as a bare minimum. Anyone who is not compliant with this, will not be allowed to coach, train, supervise or assist at matches with any youth teams, until this requirement is met.


Sheffield & Hallamshire FA will be carrying out spot checks at training sessions and matches across the county that these mandatory requiremnts is being adhered to. If anyone is found, at a spot check, not to be compliant, the clubs affiliation will be automatically removed, meaning we, as a whole club, won't be able to participate in any football activity!!!


No one other than the qualified Manager/Coach should be instructing or coaching at matches or training, anyone else present must stay behind the respect barrier, at all times!!!


If you wish to speak to someone outside the club about a welfare issue please contact;

Any adult or young person with concerns about a colleague can also use whistle-blowing by contacting The FA’s Safeguarding team on 0800 169 1863 Extension 6300 or 6400 or via email on [email protected]. Alternatively you can go direct the Police or Children’s Social Care and report your concerns there
