Workforce, competences and training
From October 2020 to March 2021, UEFA and Terre des hommes ran three in-depth child safeguarding workshops for national football associations.

UEFA a lansat un proiect pentru protecția copilului în fotbal în parteneriat cu Terre des hommes pentru a ajuta asociațiile membre UEFA și alte părți interesate din fotbal să îți reîmprospăteze cunoștințele și aptitudinile cu privire la protecția copilului.
