All clubs need an appointed and trained club welfare officer, and must ensure that all coaches are trained in basic safeguarding awareness.
Not only is this vital good practice, but it is also a requirement of the government safeguarding guidance; ‘Working Together’, and forms part of England Boxing’s child protection procedures.
Recognising this requirement not only contributes to the richness of the club and well-being of its members, but also drastically reduces the risk of the club falling foul of litigation in the event that an incident occurs.
Club Welfare Officers and all coaches are required to attend a three-hour Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop, and Club Welfare Officers are also required to attend an NSPCC Time to Listen workshop, which can be booked separately.
Please note: due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all England Boxing Safeguarding courses have been postponed for the remainder of March and April with immediate effect.
We will reschedule these courses for later in the summer and early Autumn. Where someone can’t make a rearranged course, then we will do our best to accommodate them or offer them a refund.
Further updates will follow when available.
