Safe Hands for Club Safeguarding Officers

Safe Hands is the required workshop for all Club Safeguarding Officers and seeks to ensure that each club is aware of the role of the Club Safeguarding Officer within the framework of child protection and making clubs a welcome, safe and friendly place for children and young people.

The course will cover core legislation and government guidance, as well as providing the opportunity to share experiences and good practice with other Club Safeguarding Officers from across the county.

Every Club Safeguarding Officer must attend this course and it must be renewed every three years.

Please Note: when enrolling onto the Safe Hands course you are also automatically enrolled onto the online Safeguarding for Committee Members and Club Safeguarding Officer course. However, if you already hold a current and valid SYC qualification you are NOT obliged to complete the Safeguarding course at this time. At the point your SYC expires, you will need to complete the online safeguarding course.

In order to achieve your Safe Hands qualification, you must also hold a current and valid safeguarding qualification.
