Additional Learning

For further learning, welfare and safeguarding training is delivered through NSPCC’s ‘Time to Listen’ workshop. This was designed predominately for welfare officers but is open to anybody who would like to advance their safeguarding knowledge. Therefore, the ‘Time to Listen’ workshops are recommended for all Welfare Officers, committee members, coaches and officials.

Sports organisations have a responsibility to ensure adults and vulnerable individuals are appropriately safeguarded. As part of this, appropriate policies, procedures and training should be in place.
