At the end of this month, English football at every level will unite to promote Play Safe – a national campaign to focus attention of the vital importance of safeguarding in our national game.
Led by The Football Association, the Play Safe campaign is endorsed by the NSPCC and supported by every level of the game, including the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship, and right across the grassroots game.
We are proud to be supporting Play Safe on our website and social media channels – and also by making an online Play Safe Pledge. Our pledge will see us listen to players’ views and work with them on changes that can be made, ensure safeguarding information is up to date on our website, and support the weekend via our social media channels.
Of course, safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, so if you haven’t already, why not make your own Play Safe Pledge? We encourage you to do so.
This year’s Play Safe weekend has two main messages:
- ‘Everyone, everywhere, every time’ should have an understanding of safeguarding in football;
- Everyone should ‘watch, listen, talk and act’ if they have any safeguarding concerns.
If you have a safeguarding concern, or would like some advice, the person to contact at Tranmere Rovers is Paul via PaulM@tranmererovers.co.uk.
Together, let’s create an ever-safer culture across the game we all love.
