Safeguarding

Safeguarding is at the core of everything we do here at Northants FA. We're responsible for the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults involved in grassroots football within the County.

It's paramount to us that Safeguarding is a priority for all and we are here to help you do just that. 

We strive to offer you the best safeguarding support possible and are here to help you create safe environments for individuals to enjoy the beautiful game in!
