Life, in many respects, resembles a football match as it is comprised of a mixed bag of emotions such as joy; sadness; elation; anxiety; achievement and frustration.
However, when negative emotions and frustrations spill over, an adult may ‘see red’ and vent their frustrations at a child or young person.
Northern Ireland international and Child and Player Welfare Ambassador, Jonny Evans, took time out from his busy schedule to help the Irish FA and the NSPCC launch a joint safeguarding poster campaign called “Seeing Red.” The campaign is targeted at adults involved in football and encourages them to report any concerns which they may have about the welfare of a child or young person to the NSPCC via a free phone, text or email service.
Jonny Evans commented: “I am delighted as Child and Player Welfare Ambassador to help the IFA and NSPCC launch a football themed campaign that delivers such an important message to coaches and volunteers involved in the game. It’s fantastic that the NSPCC offers a confidential help line and I would appeal to anyone who has concerns about a child to avail of the service.”
Irish FA Child and Player Welfare Officer, Jessica de Largy, added: “I am delighted that the NSPCC and the Irish FA have produced a joint safeguarding resource. Football is a unique sport as it has the power to deliver important social messages to everyone involved in the game and I can not think of a better football and safeguarding Ambassador than Jonny Evans to kick start the campaign.”
