FAQS: Get Into volunteering

You can volunteer at any age, as long as you are able to fulfil your allocated roles and responsibilities. For young volunteers the Jersey FA provides a Youth Council

There are a number of local clubs you can volunteer at. In the first instance you can either contact the club secretary, or if you are not sure where you want to volunteer you can contact us at the Jersey FA and we will be happy to signpost you. We also have a variety of ways you can volunteer at the Jersey Football Association.

For most roles you will not need any qualification, however if you are working with children you will need to pass your FA Child Safeguarding Course and Criminal Records Check.

Safeguarding Children courses run every few months. Please contact Brian.Oliver@jerseyfa.com for more information.

Criminal Record Checks (CRC) are a way of ensuring a fun and safe learning environment for everyone in local football. To complete your CRC you will need;

  • A proof of address i.e. utility bill.
  • A form of identification i.e. passport or driving license
  • Contact Robert Lawrence at Robert.Lawrence@jerseyfa.com to commence the process

These processes are simple and easy to complete don't let them put you off volunteering.
