Safeguarding Awareness for Parents & Carers

National Children's Day | FA Safeguarding Awareness Course

To celebrate National Children’s Day on Sunday, 15th May, Cardiff City FC are proud to promote the launch of the FA’s newly developed online training, ‘Safeguarding Awareness for Parents and Carers’.

The Safeguarding Awareness for Parents & Carers' course, which forms part of the Play Safe campaign launched in November 2021 and supported by the Club, is designed to help you to make an informed choice about the football setting you enrol your child in.

Upon completion of the course, you’ll receive a safeguarding certificate that will appear on your FA ‘FAN’ account. You can return to the course to refresh your knowledge at any time.

We encourage all supporters, volunteers and stakeholders who may be parents and carers of children and young people playing grassroots football to take the course.

Head of Safeguarding, Rob Cronick, said, "This free training module will be invaluable in providing all parents and carers of children and young people in both the professional game and grassroots football with an understanding of safeguarding, including types and signs of abuse and how to report a safeguarding concern.

"This was a key recommendation in the review conducted by Clive Sheldon QC. This training will also feature in the Club’s new Safeguarding Strategy 2022-2025 that will be published in the coming weeks.

"I wholeheartedly encourage all parents and carers to take advantage of this important course.”
