Sport Welfare Officer
The Whyte Review, published in July 2022, questioned the level of safeguarding responsibility delegated to volunteers at a regional/local level. Sport England's policy response, published with UK Sport in January 2023, included a proposal to fund a professional, national network of Sport Welfare Officers in England. These posts are located within Active Partnerships (APs) who have a high level of knowledge of their locality.
The postholder will work with National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and their local clubs to promote good practice and safe sport on a local level. This new role will help further understanding of safeguarding in local sport clubs.
