Safeguarding at Northern

Safeguarding at Blackburn Northern

The Blackburn Northern Management Committee feels it is an appropriate time to highlight the Safeguarding processes and procedures that the club has in place.

Dr Nick Roberts is the Club Welfare Officer and is a member of the management committee. He has undertaken the NHS Child Safeguarding Level 2 training, the NSPCC Safeguarding course and England Hockey Safeguarding training.

At the present time only two sections: tennis and hockey offer junior coaching and play.

Tennis: the coaches are LTA accredited which ensures appropriate training and DBS checks are in place.

Hockey: a qualified Level 2 coach oversees junior training and those working alongside him have been DBS checked. Dr Nick Roberts is the welfare officer for the men’s section and Hannah Laverty for the ladies section.

Anyone who has a concern with regards to the well-being of a child should contact the Club Welfare Officer.
