Are you part of a grassroots club or league? It is a mandatory requirement that all leagues and clubs with youth teams must have a named Welfare Officer.
To become a Welfare Officer, candidates must go on ‘The FA Welfare Workshop’, which is a three hour course. This workshop builds on the Safeguarding Children Workshop providing welfare officers with the specifics of their role, what will be required of them, and where they can go for professional support and guidance. This interactive workshop will provide you will key tools to carry out the role of a Welfare Officer within your grassroots club or league.
All leagues and clubs with youth teams must have a named Welfare Officer, who has an 'accepted' FA Criminal Record Check (CRC) via The FA Disclosure Unit and who has completed The FA Safeguarding Children and Welfare Officer Workshop.
To register your interest in attending a course please contact Rosie Eggleston (safeguarding lead) on 01202 688273, alternatively email Rosie.Eggleston@Dorsetfa.com
