Club Welfare Officer
We have a Club appointed Welfare Officer, who can be contacted below.
The Club Welfare Officer has two key responsibilities these are:
1. To be clear about the clubs responsibilities when running activities for children and young people. This involves:
• Ensuring these responsibilities are well understood by others
• Working with the Youth League Welfare Officer
• Working with the County FA (CFA) Welfare Officer and other CFA staff as appropriate, (e.g. CFA Disciplinary staff)
• Helping to develop best-practice processes and promoting The FA’s Respect Programme
2. To help club personnel understand what their ‘duty of care’ towards children and young people actually means and entails on a day-to-day basis.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) Are the leading children's charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands.
Alongside The FA own procedures for responding to, and reporting concerns, about a child The FA promotes the use of NSPCC helpline 0808 800 5000 which responded to almost 55,000 contacts from adults concerned about the welfare of a child last year.
The NSPCC helpline is open 24hrs a day and is a place adults can contact by phone or online to get advice or share their concerns about a child, anonymously if they wish. It's staffed by professional practitioners with backgrounds in jobs like teaching, healthcare and social work, who know how to spot the signs of abuse and what to do to help.
If you have concerns about a child or young person please contact the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Whatever the issue, we're here 24/7 to keep children safe.
