Liverpool County FA is set to host its second ‘Introduction to Excellence in Safeguarding’ event on Wednesday 17 October, specifically for Club Welfare Officers from the Warrington Junior Football League.
Teaming up with Safeguarding and Victim Engagement (SAVE) and i7 Solutions, the SAVE Excellence in Safeguarding Standard aims to achieve maximum benefit and protection for young people, parents, carers, vulnerable adults, coaches, volunteers, clubs and their committee members.
The evening will afford Club Welfare Offices the opportunity to meet and network with former professional footballers and SAVE ambassadors Paul Stewart, David White and Ian Ackley; in order to explore the possibility of enhancing their club status and standing, with an emphasis on the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults engaged with their club.
Gordon Johnson, Designated Safeguarding Officer at Liverpool County FA, said: “Our Association continues to support all initiatives aimed at keeping kids involved in football safe, and ensure their continued enjoyment of the game.
“This is the second event run in conjunction with SAVE, which we hope will be beneficial to our clubs currently playing in the Warrington Junior Football League.”
All clubs attending, if they have yet to do so, should confirm their attendance to the Warrington Junior Football League Welfare Officer, Jenni Leyland, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
