Club welfare officers

The Club has one Welfare Officer at present, Kate Bowden (another will be appointed as soon as possible).

The Welfare Officers are here to listen, support and protect members. If any member has a concern, please contact them in complete confidence. If needed they may consult with England Athletics for further support and guidance.

The Welfare Officers ensure that DBS checks are in place as required by the England Athletics Procedures and Policies for running clubs.

They will promote best practice throughout the Club, and deal with poor practice in accordance with the Club’s disciplinary process.
