FAI Child Welfare Ambassador John O’Shea helped launch the FAI Social Media Policy, which is a supporting document for the FAI Child Welfare Policy.

The FAI understands that the use of social media helps to promote football, if used appropriately, so the Social Media Policy sets out guidelines and procedures to assist those setting up or administering their organisations’ social media activities.

The FAI has long taken its responsibilities in relation to child welfare very seriously and this document reflects the FAI’s continued determination to ensure a safe and friendly environment for children’s football.

The policy can be accessed at www.fai.ie/domestic/safeguarding/documents
