UKA & Home Countries Safeguarding Review – Support Webinars

24/03/2021 00:00, In Blog /

In 2020 UKA commissioned an Independent Review of Safeguarding practice within athletics. Since the publication of the review, Welsh Athletics staff have worked alongside UKA colleagues and safeguarding teams at the other Home Countries Federations to update policies, procedures, and codes of conduct to meet review recommendations. However, other actions will have an impact on affiliated clubs across the UK.

In addition to the letter recently sent to all Clubs, we have scheduled a series of Regional Club Welfare Officer sessions in order to provide both updates, information relating to implementation as well as outline the help and support available.

This meeting is for Club Chairs and Club Welfare Officers (male and female) to provide key updates in relation to both club and national safeguarding and welfare practices across the sport. Naturally, there will be the opportunity for all clubs/club officers to ask questions. 


  • The invite to these meetings has been sent to all Club Chairs as well as Male Club Welfare Officers and Female Club Welfare Officers. Due to the nature of the content, although these sessions are not mandatory, it is strongly advised that all clubs are represented at the session in some capacity.
  • The scheduled sessions are being run as a ‘regional’ however should you not be able to make the session date/time identified for your region, please register for the most convenient slot.
  • The meeting will be held virtually via the Zoom platform, registration for the event will be through Event Brite, upon registration you will receive the link and joining instructions for the session.
