Codes of Conduct
Birmingham City Football Academy has developed specific codes of conduct to ensure all staff at the Club, and users of the Academy are aware of their responsibilities.
In light of publicity about sexual abuse in football, the FA, EFL and Premier League have agreed to support victims and raise awareness.
As a Club, Birmingham City FC is right behind this initiative.
The FA has commissioned a helpline in conjunction with the NSPCC for individuals who were victims of sexual abuse in childhood within the football industry. The number is 0800 023 2642.
