British Gymnastics are running a face to face Safeguarding Conference on Sunday 10th July 2022 at Peter Newton Pavilion, Skimpot Road, Dunstable, Bedfordshire, LU5 4JU from 10am – 4pm.
The conference is designed for any British Gymnastics member over the age of 16 with an interest in safeguarding, in particular Club Welfare Officers.
There is a cost of £10 which includes a cold buffet style lunch and refreshments, bookable via the British Gymnastics website Course Enrolment - Safeguarding ConferenceSafeguarding (british-gymnastics.org).
We have a guest speaker from the NSPCC CPSU (Child Protection in Sport Unit) who will be delivering an interactive presentation on the voice of the child, building on other presentations already delivered by British Gymnastics Business Support Team for Happy Healthy Workforce week and looking at children raising concerns, how to manage these and how to improve the gym environment so that they feel they can speak out, irrelevant of what their concerns are.
We will also be looking at how we support our gymnasts post Covid and the Whyte Review and what that means for British Gymnastics and our clubs.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Safeguarding Officer Karly Good at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you will be able to join us.
