This email has been sent to all Regional, League and Club Secretaries; please ensure you share it with all other relevant officials.
The SYFA has made the difficult decision to furlough a number of staff. We will be utilising the Government Job Retention Scheme, in order to protect the association financially and ensure we’re fully resourced when football activities recommence.
In light of this, please see below updated contact details below:
Child Wellbeing and Protection: firstname.lastname@example.org
PVG Enquiries & Player Pathway Enquiries: Florence.Witherow@scottish-football.com
Complaints, Compliance and Media Enquiries: Rachel.Stewart@scottish-football.com
Registration and Dispensation Enquires : email@example.com
As before, I am available via email throughout this period to answer any specific queries or matters arising so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
I would also take this opportunity to request that no PVG applications are posted to Hampden during this time. Disclosure Scotland is not accepting paper forms, but is dealing with urgent applications relating to coronavirus online. In addition to this, I would remind you that we do not currently have access to Hampden to collect mail.
At this stage there is no firm indication as to when football activities might resume, but rest assured I will inform you all as soon as we receive any updated information.
I hope you are all staying safe and well.
