The workshop outlines the roles and responsibilities of Welfare Officers at National, County and Club level, and covers legislation and Government guidance, the procedure for reporting incidents / allegations and examples of situations a CWO may be asked to deal with.
At the workshop candidates will be given a copy of the ECB Safe Hands document which includes glossary of terms, definitions of abuse, reporting procedures, guidelines and advice for club policies, and rules and regulations of play.
