Howard Davies, Safeguarding Officer for the Aberdare League, receiving the clubs accreditation certificates.This year in the Aberdare Valley League all clubs with junior and mini teams have achieved the Bronze award. Howard said “the process of club accreditation is positive and helps clubs and leagues continue to develop further with the structures they have in place”

The FAW Club Accreditation scheme supported by McDonald’s is a charter mark programme, which recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision in club football. The kitemark is awarded to clubs that are well run, sustainable, which place child protection, quality coaching and safety at the heart of their values.

There are four levels to the FAW Club Accreditation Scheme to recognise the different standards. The entry level Standard Award is mandatory for all clubs who wish to enter into one of the 34 FAW affiliated Junior Leagues in Wales. The next levels are Bronze and Silver with the most advanced level being Gold Award. Each advanced level requires additional criteria to be met.
