Mental Health during lockdown
As we are drawing closer to the return of football we have had a few queries from clubs regarding concerns for the mental health of children and the impact Covid-19 is having on them. Please have a look at this link from the NSPCC that can be used as a guide in supporting children and young person’s mental Health. Article
Additionally, all people that are working with young people, including all of our coaches and assistants, have been told about the new law of ‘Position of Trust’ (see below)
‘Position of Trust’ – new law
The ‘Positions of Trust’ law, which was only applied to roles like teachers and social workers, has now been extended to now include sports coaches and faith-leaders. Article
