Have you downloaded our Risk Management App?

The app is available to Affiliated Clubs within the FFA National Insurance programme.

This app includes risk management resources that clubs can complete and store without the burden of having to make paperwork available for ground managers or storing completed documents. The app provides a guide to some of the areas where risks are present that can then be identified and actions proposed to mitigate the impacts of potential incidents or injuries.
