We want to give everyone the opportunity to discover and enjoy American Football. It is important that young people or vulnerable adults can do this, regardless of their age, gender or disability.
If you have a concern about a child or adult at risk, or someone that is working with children or adults at risk, you can report it using the form below.
You must take action to immediately safeguard children and adults at risk.
You must contact your Club Welfare Officer and if they are not available, or if you are concerned about the immediate safety of someone, contact the Police or Children’s Social Care.
Expert advice can also be provided by the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000.
- Reassured the young person
- Been honest and not made promises you cannot keep
- Explained why you may have to tell other people in order to stop what’s happening
- Avoided closed questions and asked as few a questions as possible

These are all important to remember when documenting and reporting a concern.
