Welfare Officer Training dates announced for Spring

We're running two workshops for Welfare Officers in April and May

If you're a Welfare Officer at a club or league, we'd love you to come along for these workshops to gain some valuable skills which will help you in your role.

Workshop Details: 

Neglect and the Impact on Child Development

Thursday 13th April 2023 (6pm–7pm) - Online

The aim of this session is to share knowledge and research about the issue of Neglect of Children and how this impacts on child development. To consider how we better support those children within grassroots football.

Managing Conflict 

Wednesday 10th May 2023 (6pm-7pm) - Online

In this session, we will consider the challenges and behaviours of adults during matches and what changes could be made to enable better management of pitch-side behaviour. To offer support and seek ideas from welfare Officers around the issue.

To book onto any of these sessions, please email our Designated Safeguarding Officer, Lisa Morrison, on
