Email from Surrey FA Safeguarding Officer follows below:
Dear Club Welfare Officer,
I hope you are all well and staying safe during this difficult time.
We are all aware that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, which is why the safety and security of all children and young people involved in the game of football in Surrey is one of our top priorities.
Sometimes it can be difficult for children and young people to fully understand what ‘safeguarding’ actually means and how it relates to them. Overcoming these potential barriers is one of our key challenges and making sure we use their language is vital in promoting our message.
With this in mind, we have launched our Safeguarding Poster competition. The competition has been designed to give young players of all ages an opportunity to create safeguarding posters with messages and imagery which appeal to them and others around their age or needs.
1st prize – £25.00 Amazon gift card
2 additional prizes – £10.00 Amazon gift cards
The two week long competition will run until Tuesday 15th December with winners announced later that week.
To help players get started with their creations, we have created a helpful Surrey FA branded poster template.
Entrants may find it helpful to take a look at the information, games and resources on our Kidzone webpage for inspiration!
Please send a scan or photo of the completed entries to Marketing@SurreyFA.com with the subject line of Safeguarding Poster Competition. Good luck!
Thank you once again for all the great work you all do within your clubs to make sure our young people enjoy their football in a safe and fun environment.
