New Sport Welfare Lead

A new, national network of Sport Welfare Officers is being created across England to support National Governing Bodies (NGB) and their local clubs to promote good practice and safe sport for children, young people and adults on a local level. The officers will help support clubs move from welfare  compliance to develop effective welfare and inclusive cultures. 

The officers will add capacity and expertise to the existing safeguarding work of NGBs and Active Partnerships. They will help further understand safeguarding in local clubs e.g. how policies and procedures are cascaded and help share good practice, bringing those from different sports together. They will work closely with other Sport Welfare Officers, National Governing Bodies and wider organisations; to connect people working on welfare and safeguarding, both inside and outside sport.

Think Active are delighted to have Dean Eagles join our team as our Sport Welfare Lead.

Dean will be supporting clubs and National Governing Bodies to improve and embed their welfare and safeguarding processes, as well as promoting good practice and an inclusive culture of safe sport for children,  young people and adults.
