Managing Children’s Wellbeing is a free, 3 hour workshop which aims to help CWPOs have an understanding of implementing the national context of wellbeing, safeguarding and protecting children in a football environment and be aware of risks to children’s wellbeing and the procedures in place to help minimise these risks.

From July 2018, this workshop will be a compulsory requirement for all club CWPOs.  All CWPOs must therefore have completed this training by 30 June 2018*.

 

Please note that this workshop is for club Child Wellbeing and Protection Officers only.  It is the responsibility of the Club Secretary to ensure that this information is communicated internally within the club and forwarded on the club’s Child Wellbeing & Protection Officer.
