What to do if you have concerns about someone’s welfare

lf you believe a child to be in immediate danger, you must call the police, then notify your club Welfare Officer for further advice. If no immediate danger is apparent, you need to notify your club Welfare Officer in the first instance.

Club Welfare Officers should be fully aware of Wavepower (2016-2019) polices and information and ensure they are adopted into all club practices.

For more information please contact our Welfare Officer

All club personnel who are regularly in contact with children, young people or vulnerable adults are required to undertake an Enhanced DBS check and attend an approved Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop. These must both must be completed every three years. Wavepower 2016-19, section 2, has a list of personnel who require a DBS, together with a list of approved workshops.
