Notice from the FA:
We are pleased to share with you the range of Play Safe assets so you can support football’s National Safeguarding Weekend on Saturday and Sunday 20/21 November 2021.
Short films x 3: The first two are aimed at parents/carers and children for you to share. The third film is for you, the club officials. They all feature England players and among their key messages are the importance of listening to children, knowing how, and who to speak to if concerns do arise.
There are three versions of the films to download:
As you’ll see, they are all available in 16:9 ratio for websites and in 1:1 ratio for social media.
Digital assets: These are for use on websites, social media and include some to use as email signatures. They are available here and as you’ll see are available in three different design formats:
· Red shield/blue background
· Red shield/white background
· White shield/picture background
As you’ll see, the assets are animated gifs and very importantly, please can you embed this link behind them all: www.TheFA.com/PlaySafe That’s so anyone clicking on an asset comes through to The FA’s main information page on this campaign, which also signposts wider safeguarding resources.
Editorial assets: A template article for websites is provided at the end of this email.
Thank you in advance for supporting the launch of Play Safe, we look forward to using it over the next three seasons to positively message out to everyone involved in football. The plan is for it to help underpin all football’s safeguarding work throughout the year and be used for a national safeguarding weekend every football season. We’ll also be encouraging use of the assets for events such as Safer Internet Day, NSPCC Parents in Sport Week and Anti-Bullying Week 2022/23 – so please keep them.
