Countdown For The 13 Clubs Without A Qualified Welfare Officer!
Countdown for the 13 clubs without a Qualified Welfare Officer!
13 Clubs without a qualified Welfare Officer are subject to an Action Plan to appoint a Welfare Officer by the 15th December to avoid suspension. FA Rules are clear that all youth clubs must have a qualified Welfare Officer in place.
There are four mandatory requirements the Welfare Officer needs in place for this role:
- An accepted FA CRC.
- Completed an FA Safeguarding Children Workshop.
- Completion of the Welfare Officer Workshop.
- Completed the Online Safeguarding for Committee Members course.
The safeguarding workshops and welfare officer workshops can be booked on the West Riding FA website, or alternatively by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
There are two scheduled Welfare Workshops coming up 31/10/18 and 13/12/18.
Any club without a named, qualified Welfare Officer, will be suspended as of 15th December 2018.
