Stamford Bridge Football Club is a Chartered Standard Community Club

Every one of our Age related coaches have a current Safeguarding Children certificate and are enhanced CRC checked. Each team also has a coach who is FA first aid trained. 


We have a Club appointed Welfare Officer, who can be contacted below.

The Club Welfare Officer has two key responsibilities these are:


1. To be clear about the clubs responsibilities when running activities for children and young people. This involves:

• Ensuring these responsibilities are well understood by others

• Working with the Youth League Welfare Officer

• Working with the County FA (CFA) Welfare Officer and other CFA staff as appropriate, (e.g. CFA Disciplinary staff)

• Helping to develop best-practice processes and promoting The FA’s Respect Programme


2. To help club personnel understand what their ‘duty of care’ towards children and young people actually means and entails on a day-to-day basis.

This ensures you as a player, parent / carer have peace of mind in your Club. 

Please fully read below our club safeguarding policy document for more information and guidance.

The link has a lot really good information on safeguarding frameworks, best practises, reporting concerns and support mechanisms available. SBFC fully support and adopt the FA policy.

The role of the Mental Wellness Champion is to champion positive mental health in young people, support a culture of listening to young people and promote a positive club culture where young people thrive.
