The Safeguarding Children Course is designed to provide key information on how to prevent, identify and action any potential Safeguarding issues for any volunteer who has regular contact with children/ vulnerable players in football. As best practice a volunteer who has regular contact would benefit from attending this course. 

The course opened my eyes to potential issues that might arise and gave me more confidence in how to address them. It also confirmed that I am conducting myself in the appropriate manner and am using best practice.
