Wellbeing and Protection

Safeguarding players is of paramount importance to Scottish Para-Football

Scottish Para-Football is dedicated to providing safe and secure footballing opportunities for young people and protected adults in Scotland, with wellbeing and protection central to all that we do. This section provides important information and advice on wellbeing and protection.

If you have any concerns about the welfare of a player, please complete our Concern Recording Form for either Children or Protected Adults and email this to our National Protection Officer - David McArdle -

Reporting Concerns will follow the appropriate flowchart Child or Protected Adults  

If you think a child is in immediate danger, call the police on 999, or call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000, straight away
