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. The minimum age to attend a course is 16.
Safeguarding courses restart
Face-to-face England Boxing safeguarding courses will return from Monday 12th April following a suspension of more than a year because of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
The new dates have been uploaded below, with more dates to be added for venues around the country in due course. Please check back regularly for updates.
Please note that extra measures have been put in place on courses to mitigate against Covid-19 transmission.
New lanyards will only be issued for the 2021-22 season once up-to-date safeguarding certification has been received by England Boxing, where required.
