Time to Listen

The workshop will:

• describe how a club welfare officer works with others to create a child centred environment

• explain how the club welfare officer role fits into the wider safeguarding environment

• apply learning to case studies including sharing good safeguarding practice

All individuals and organisations have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure the safeguarding and protecting of children. Whenever volunteers and paid staff provide activities for children they have a duty of care for these children. This duty extends to making sure children are safe in all sporting activities and integral to this is that sport is fun. Various initiatives have been designed to support this mandate including the Standards for Safeguarding and Protecting Children in England which the majority of Sport England-funded national governing bodies are working towards or have achieved.

You have a vital role as the club welfare officer in supporting your club to achieve these safeguarding aims. This training resource is designed to provide you with the tools that will support you and your club to safeguard and protect children.
