Providing a positive welcome, Nov 2019

Document will help with best practice

A NEW document will help provide the best welcome possible to newcomers to your club.

CLUBS across Suffolk can now access a brand-new document produced by The FA, packed with best practice to help ensure you provide the best welcome possible to newcomers.

Entitled ‘Providing A Positive Welcome To Your Club’, the document aims to support clubs to reflect on the information currently made available to parents and carers, with a specific focus on how that is done and elements that could be enhanced.

Within the resource document, clubs can find tips and advice including:


  • A club checklist
  • Hyperlinks to FA guidance
  • User agreements
  • Appropriate club official/coach
  • Communicating with parents
  • Running events


All Club Welfare Officers are encouraged to take this document, attached at the foot of this page, to their committee to gain a buy-in across the club environment.
