Tyne & Wear Sport are delivering a Time to Listen workshop for Club Welfare Officers.


Time to Listen is a training programme developed by the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) specifically for people who have a designated role in safeguarding within a sports setting. Time to Listen is a three hour workshop for Club Welfare Officers (CWO).


CWOs must have attended a Safeguarding & Protecting Children workshop previously and will need to bring their own reporting procedures to the workshop.


The workshop will:

Describe how a club welfare officer works with others to create a child centred environment
Explain how the club welfare officer role fits into the wider safeguarding environment
Apply learning to case studies including sharing good safeguarding practice
The course is interactive with group activities and discussions and helps Club Welfare Officers to understand their role and be most effective. It gives the opportunity to share experiences and reflect on how to make Safeguarding in the Club ‘live’.
