Safeguarding Children Workshops
The Football Association GOAL programme is an integral part of the game's dedication to Child Protection, and the Safeguarding Children Workshop is an integral guide to best practice in this area. For more information or to join a course please contact Bob Leeds (0207 359 3667) at the Amateur Football Alliance.
GOAL is about doing things the right way, doing things properly. It's about allowing children to enjoy the game without abuse of any kind. That means bullying, physical, emotional or sexual abuse and neglect.
