Do you know your Club Welfare Officer

Check out the weblink poster below



The Ichthus Canoe Clubs Welfare Officer is Simon Cozens.

What is my role

A Club Welfare Officer should help their club to promote a person focused environment. They do this by raising awareness of what a safe and positive environment is like, and how people should behave to ensure everyone at the club enjoys their involvement in sport.

Club Welfare Officers are trained in safeguarding and child
protection. They also have links with British Canoeing Safeguarding
and Welfare staff who can be contacted for advise or to report any
concerns at the club.

If you are worried about how you or someone else is being treated
at your club by another young person or adult, you should speak to
your Club Welfare Officer or for immediate confidential advice you
can contact:
