Safeguarding and Welfare


At Sheffield and Hallamshire County FA we take our commitment to Safeguarding very seriously.  All of our County FA team can help you with whatever enquiry or concern you may have and would encourage you to get in touch with us if you need to advice.

The safety of children is paramount and everyone who works or volunteers with Children or Adults at Risk have a role to play so that strong Safeguarding systems are implemented in our County FA’s football clubs.

We understand that it can be very scary to be involved in a Safeguarding issue, either as a witness or if someone tells you about a concern that they have so please remember that we are here to help.  Contact the Safeguarding and Welfare Officer, Claire MacRory, on 0114 261 5514 or 07534 442015.
