Places available: Safeguarding 1 workshop, March 29th.

There are a few places still available for the Safeguarding 1 workshop on Friday, March 29th – places can be booked by club members here. All adults – coaches, committee members and non-coaching volunteers – in every club who have contact with children are required to have undertaken Safeguarding 1.

Two Safeguarding 1 courses are taking place every month, March to November. Acknowledging that club members have a variety of schedules and that no one time will be best for all, a percentage of courses will take place in the evenings, a percentage during weekday lunchtimes and a percentage on Saturdays. Workshops on Safeguarding 2 and Safeguarding 3 will be made available later in 2024.
