Each club should have an appointed Club Welfare Officer who has attended the necessary course provided by the SCB (Safe Hands Workshop).
In an ideal situation, each club should also have a Deputy Welfare Officer to take the place of the Welfare Officer should they be away.
It is a requirement for clubs with Clubmark accreditation and clubs with a league playing side and/or junior section to have a qualified Club Welfare Officer.
