safeguarding for referees

Norfolk FA takes the safety and well-being of our young Referees very seriously. Whilst the vast majority of football is played in safe and friendly environments where everyone can enjoy taking part, there may be occasions where you would like additional help and support. If you witness anything that concerns you, have any safeguarding issue regarding yourself, or if you just wish to speak to us, the document at the bottom of this page provides full details of who to contact as well as other useful information.
The FA Respect


The FA's Respect programme provides a series of tools for leagues, clubs, coaches, players and parents from grassroots to elite football - to help ensure a safe, positive environment in which to play the game.
