Information & Support
Hi, my name is Veronique Nani and I am the Designated Safeguarding Officer for Bedfordshire FA.
My job is to help look after you when you are playing football, to make sure you are enjoying it and you aren’t worried about something that has happened in football to you or to somebody else.
If somebody says or does something you are worried about, you need to tell an adult you trust. You can tell your parent or carer, your coach or your club Welfare Officer. Or you can talk to your teacher or your doctor. They will all help you.
Every club has a Welfare Officer who is there to make sure everything is going well in your club. If you don’t know who this person is, you can ask your parent or carer or your coach or another adult.
