Club Safeguarding Officers are essential for all clubs, regardless of whether they feature a junior section or not. CSOs are required to attend a Safehands course every 3 years and must renew their Safeguarding and Protecting Children qualification every 3 years.
CSOs must have a valid ECB DBS and can initiate and verify DBS applications for volunteers at their club.
Any questions regarding welfare or safeguarding can be directed to our County Safeguarding Officer Dave Weston.
