Youth Footballers Hub

Welcome to the Youth Footballers Hub. Here you will find lots of information on how to stay safe in football and get help if you need it.



Keeping and feeling safe is really important. If something is worrying you or making you feel upset there are lots of people who you can talk to.

- Your mum, dad or whoever looks after you at home
- Your football coach
- Your club welfare officer - if you don't know who this is someone you play football with should be able to tell you

If you don't feel like you can talk to any of these people we have a Designated Safeguarding Officer at Leicestershire & Rutland CFA. Her name is Emma and you can email her on safeguarding@leicestershirefa.com or call 0116 286 7828 (opt. 1) or 07983 167430

Emma works alongside Sam, Shaun, Joe and Jamie who all are also available to listen and can be contacted in the same way as Emma.
