Child safeguarding toolkit for UEFA member associations [English]

The child safeguarding toolkit for European football was developed by UEFA and Terre des hommes to help UEFA member associations protect and safeguard children from abuse and respond to any concerns. The toolkit recognises that many national associations have already introduced good policies, procedures and training, and builds on extensive consultation with those national associations and experts in the field.

Guidance note: Role and responsibilities of child safeguarding focal point [UEFA]

The role of the child safeguarding focal point is critical to an environment where children of all ages and abilities can safely participate in football and have fun. However, this does not mean that the focal point has sole responsibility for the safeguarding of children within an organisation. The role of the focal point, as the name suggests, is to provide a point of contact, and to advise, support and assist the organisation in the implementation of the child safeguarding policy and associated procedures, including responding to cases.
