Here at Manchester United, we believe that it is always unacceptable for a child or adult at risk to experience abuse of any kind and recognise our responsibility to safeguard their welfare by a commitment to practice which protects them.


How does the club safeguard children and adults at risk?

As part of our commitment, we have a Safeguarding Team which supports children, adults at risk and our colleagues across the Club, from the Academy, Women’s Football, MU Foundation and on a matchday.

We have a comprehensive safeguarding policy which covers how we work safely with children and adults at risk, and how we manage concerns that are raised.

We also want to ensure that children are aware of relevant safeguarding information and how they can keep themselves safe with our children’s version of the safeguarding policy. You can view both versions via the links below.



For those attending a match at Old Trafford, we have the following FAQs which may help you to plan an enjoyable and safe day.


As part of the Premier League's growing partnership with the NSPCC, a bespoke landing page has been created on the safeguarding section of the Premier League's website. Children (12 and under) and young people (12+) can access information and get support with issues which may be affecting them.

If you have any questions about safeguarding or wish to raise a concern, please email or call 0161 868 8000.

You can find more information about safeguarding in football on The Football Association's official website.
