The Role of a Welfare Officer

A club Welfare Officer is the person within a sports club with primary responsibility for managing and reporting concerns about children and for putting into place procedures to safeguard children in that club.

 

Ideally, you’ll need knowledge of:

National Governing Body’s Child Welfare Policy & Procedures which can be found HERE.
Core legislation, government guidance and the national framework for child protection.
Roles and responsibilities of local statutory agencies (Social Services, Police and Area Child Protection Committees).
Role and responsibilities of both the National Governing Body and the club, in safeguarding the welfare of children and young people, and the boundaries of the club Welfare Officer role.
Awareness of equality issues and child protection.
