Every club that offers junior bowls activity must be supported with a registered Club Welfare Officer.
Each club must make this officer known to all members of the bowls club, with appropriate contact details readily available so any children or parents/carers know who to contact with any concerns.
All CWO’s will have to have completed a Time To Listen course.
Furthermore, it is good practise for coaches and volunteers to be aware of all safeguarding issues and the scUK Safeguarding and Protecting Children Course supports these people. For more information please see below
