Here at Parkwyddn JFC we take the welfare of our players and coaches very seriously. We aim for every child that plays to develop and grow as part of our club, the community and as an individual.
What does a Welfare Officer do?
Welfare Officers have two key roles:
Be informed and aware of the league or club’s responsibilities when running football activities for children and young people.
- Ensuring these responsibilities are well understood by others
- Developing best practice processes.
Helping league and club personnel understand their ‘duty of care’ towards children and young people. For example:
- Ensuring all relevant people complete The FA’s ‘Safeguarding Children’ training programme
- Helping to make sure trips away are organised properly * managing the roll out of FA CRB checks.
It’s important that we all work hard to safeguard children as we all share the responsibility. Should you have a concern about one of our players, teams or officials we would ask that you use the contact information and report it to the clubs welfare team.
Your concerns will be addressed professionally and confidentially in accordance with the clubs GDPR legislation. Here are some useful links to help inform you about the FA Respect campaign and links to the NSPCC website.
