Every boxing club affiliated to England Boxing should have a designated person responsible for the safeguard and welfare of children to ensure that all children are safe from harm and not open to exploitation.
Our club is no different and Claire our Club Welfare Officer ensures that the club promotes and fulfils its responsibilities for child welfare and is available at the gym twice a week.
The Club Welfare Officer takes a key role in ensuring that child protection issues are addressed, have a clear understanding of good practice guidelines, know how to raise concerns, can respond to allegations and know how and who the information is shared with to protect all involved.
England Boxing Welfare and Child Protection information which we aligned ourselves to can be found here: ENGLAND BOXING. A copy of our own Child Protection Policy is available to read at the gym.
All our Volunteers, regardless of their role, are DBS checked.
All our coaches are qualified first aiders and are always present at every training session. A first aid kit is always available in the office.
It is not an essential requirement but our Welfare Officers are also first aid trained so they can respond to any situation. Certificates are displayed at the Gym.
