I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse in football. Should I waive my anonymity? [The FA/ English Football Association]

waiving anonymity

The FA Survivor Support and Safeguarding Advisory Group (FASSSAG) has developed guidance (download below) to help adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse in football come to a decision on whether to waive their anonymity or not. It is based on the lived experience of former footballers and is intended to help adult survivors come to a decision that’s not only right for them, but for those around them too.
