The goal of the FA Charter Standard accreditation scheme is to raise standards in grassroots football and support the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding them for their commitment and achievements. It is awarded to clubs rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable – and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect Code of Conduct. In line with the scheme’s requirements, we have an established set of policies which guide all of our activities.

FA Respect

We follow the FA Respect Code of Conduct.

Smoke and vape-free environment

As a community youth football club and with the health and wellbeing of our players and members as a priority, we respectfully ask for everyone’s support and cooperation to ensure that all training sessions and matches are smoke and vape-free zones.


Your child’s welfare is a key priority for everyone connected to the Club. If you are worried about a child, it is important that you report your concerns – no action is not an option.

GYFC follows the FA’s recommended guidelines on photography. Briefly, it is not an offence to take appropriate photos in a public place, even if asked not to; no one has the right to decide who and who cannot take photos on public land. Photographs of your child may be taken in the course of playing for GYFC. No children will be named if photos are published on the GYFC website, our social media, or through PR and marketing for the club.

If you would prefer us not to use photographs of your child / children for these purposes above, please email us specifically to ensure we understand your preference and we respect your wishes.
