That is the message at the heart of new guidelines launched by The FA for managing head injuries at all levels of the game.

Available as both a free-to-download digital document and online resource via The FA and County FA websites, the guidance is based on evidence and best practice from around the world. It includes key information on how a concussion should be managed from the time of injury through to a player’s safe return to football. Please find below the complete digital guidelines.
