We have arranged to hold a number of Safeguarding and Welfare courses on Sunday 10th June 2018. These courses will be run by the British Fencing Welfare team and will be at the Nuffield Sports Centre, Royal Masonic School for girls, Rickmansworth.
British Fencing believe that the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility, particularly when it comes to protecting children from abuse. Everyone in fencing – administrator, club official, coach, parent, friend, children themselves, everyone – can help.
British Fencing strongly recommend that all clubs offering fencing to under 18’s and vulnerable adults should have a Welfare Officer in place who is not connected to any coach within the club. Please find details here of what is required from a club welfare officer.
The courses on offer for new CWO and existing CWO wishing to renew their qualification are:
If you would like to attend a course on the 10th June, please email our regional Welfare officer (Sarah Pallier) on firstname.lastname@example.org
