Child Protection Issues

Stroud has a strict set of child protection policies and procedures in line with FA recommendations.

The key principles of the policy are that:

•           The child's welfare is, and must always be, the paramount consideration;

•           All children and young people have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial origin, religious beliefs or sexual orientation;

•           All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately;

•             Working in partnership with other organisations, children and young people and their parents and carers is essential.

The FA is committed to working in partnership with the Police, Social Services Departments, and local Safeguarding Children's Boards and Committees in accordance with their procedures. This is essential to enable these organisations to carry out their statutory duties to investigate concerns and protect all children and young people. For further details about The FA’s safeguarding policy statements aims and objectives please refer to the Safeguarding Children and Young People – Operations Manual which can be accessed via


Stroud's child protection policy complies with FA rules. In addition, all of our volunteers are CRB checked
