As a Chartered Standard Club, criminal record checks are carried out on all Alresford Town Youth coaches and they attend the FA’s safeguarding children awareness course as part of their Level 1 coaching qualification, with additional training provided to the club's Welfare Officer.
Collectively, we all work to create safe environments in football and seek to ensure that if there are concerns, people know how and where to report them.
