Statement from the FA on ongoing childhood sexual abuse cases -1/12/16
The FA continues to work closely with the relevant authorities and respects the on-going investigation by the police being coordinated by Operation Hydrant into childhood sexual abuse in football.
An internal review led by external legal counsel will look into what information The FA was aware of at the relevant times around the issues that have been raised in the press.
We are working closely with the police to support their lead investigations and must ensure we do not do anything to interfere with or jeopardise this process.
We continue to encourage anyone who was a childhood victim of sexual abuse in football to call the specially commissioned NSPCC helpline on 0800 023 2642 which is staffed by independent, experienced NSPCC professionals and available 24 hours a day, who will signpost people on to further support.
Here is the Operation Hydrant statement:
Following ongoing and widespread publicity surrounding allegations of child sexual abuse within football, many police forces across the country have received a significant number of calls, both reporting further allegations and offering information.
Current figures, collated from information supplied by forces to Operation Hydrant and including referrals from the NSPCC helpline, suggest a total of around 350 victims have come forward to report child sexual abuse.
National Police Chiefs’ council lead for child protection, chief constable Simon Bailey said: “It is important to note that this is an indicative figure only, and that information is still being collated, numbers will therefore continue to change.
“We are working closely with The Football Association to ensure that the response to this significant and growing number of victims, at all levels of football, is coordinated effectively.
“We continue to encourage those who have been the victim of child sexual abuse to report it, regardless of how long ago the abuse may have taken place.
“We will listen and treat all reports sensitively and seriously. Anyone with any information regarding child sexual abuse is also urged to come forward.
“When allegations are reported it enables police to assess whether there are current safeguarding risks and to ensure that appropriate action is taken to prevent children being abused today.
“As the number of calls being received across the service is high, it may take longer than normal for an officer from a local force to make contact to follow up from the initial call, but please be assured that the information provided will be taken seriously and acted upon.”
