how we handle reported concerns

This is done on a case by case basis, depending on the individual curcismtances.

If it is relating to a disclosure or an allegation of any kind of abuse, the Gloucestershire Football Association works closely with The Football Association’s Case Management Team, helping to safeguard football by working closely with local statutory agencies as well as supporting our Clubs in enforcing suspensions when they are issued.

When relating to cases of poor practice (unacceptable behaviour either on or beside the field of play) we first go through The FA’s nationally agreed Disciplinary Procedures, once this is completed then it is within our remit to impose additional constraints or requirements on Clubs, Teams, Officials, Parents/Carers and Players.
