Staffordshire Federation of Young Farmers Clubs

"Fun, learning and achievement"


Safeguarding and protecting children, young people and vulnerable members of our community is very important to Staffordshire YFC.  We provide activities and services for young people aged 10 to 28 years who may have additional needs for support and protection. We are committed to promoting a safe environment for children, young people and adults at risk to participate and enjoy the range YFC activities by ensuring that there are appropriate arrangements in place.

From September 2021, the federation has started to use online parental consent forms for their Competitions and Social Events, via a platform called JotForm.  To find the link to the bespoke jotform created for a particular activity, head to the calendar date on this website and scroll to the date of the event.  Note that each form has a pre-published deadline to assist with the pre-planning of the event/competition and risk assessments.  To head directly to the calendar, please click here.
